Watch: 40-Minute Searchlab Talk With Richard Linklater Plus New Featurette For 'Boyhood' Director Richard Linklater has done it all, and these two videos are proof of the diversity of projects the filmmaker has tackled over the course of his career. First up, is a vintage 40-minute Searchlab Lecture that comes from 2008, circa the release of "Waking Life." The animated film melded philosophy, the meaning of life, and much more in a freeform package that defied most conventions of traditional film structure.

Boyhood Synopsis and Credits

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

"Boyhood" stars Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, and Patricia Arquette.
