Richard Linklater’s (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight) groundbreaking film telling the story of Mason from the age of 5 to 18, shot over a period of 12 years with the same cast. This extraordinary approach yields a captivating yet intimate story of childhood and family life, taking in road trips, family dinners, birthdays, faltering marriages, new schools and first love. Patricia Arquette won an Oscar for her supporting role as Mason’s mother with Ethan Hawke as his father, while Ellar Coltrane makes a brilliant debut as Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.

“The achievement of a lifetime. Linklater has shown, perhaps with more heart-piercing acuity than any other director, how a child grows into an adult, because that’s literally what his film depicts.” (The Telegraph).
