Directed by Richard Linklater | 2014

With Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater

"A moving and memorable 12-year epic of family life that isn’t quite like anything else in the history of cinema."

One of the most acclaimed and groundbreaking films of the year, Richard Linklater’s Berlin Film Festival Silver Bear-winning drama patiently bears witness to the joy and pain of growing up, the turbulence of domestic life, and the shifting tides of pop culture. Shot over the course of 12 years, this sprawling portrait of American family life follows its young hero (Ellar Coltrane) as he makes his way from childhood to his early college years. As time drifts by, he learns to navigate his relationships with his divorced parents (Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette), tests the waters with various forms of rebellion, and discovers a passion for photography. Both ambitious and disarmingly unassuming, Linklater’s coming-of-age epic examines the fabric of daily life with the same candor and nuance that have long distinguished his remarkable career. An IFC Films release. Opens July 11.
