Richard Linklater has made some astoundingly complex and intricate films over the course of his career. However, his latest effort, titled simply Boyhood, is definitely his most ambitious. The film is a coming of age story of a boy from ages 6 to 18. However the shot the film with the same boy. Meaning the shot the film over twelve years. That’s correct the boy who ages over the course of the film is played by the same actor in every scene.
pretty impressive, right?
