Watch: Richard Linklater’s ‘Boyhood’ Trailer Captures 12-Year Passage of Time

IFC Films has released the first trailer for Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood.”

Filmed over a 12-year span, the trailer shows the literal growth of now 19-year-old star Ellar Coltrane, who was just seven when filming started.

Boyhood” premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Variety‘s Peter Debruge wrote that the “unprecedented experiment in long-term storytelling” — shot in three and four-day chunks — challenges the very notion of dramatic development.
