CSPP New Haven Region's Psychoanalysis and the Cinema Film Discussion Group


Filmed with the same actors over 12 years,

Boyhood starts in 2002 when Mason (Ellar Coltrane) is a six­-year-old boy living in Texas with his single mother (Patricia Arquette) and sister Samantha (Loretta Linklater, the director’s daughter). “The film gracefully chronicles Mason’s life until he’s 18, gradually changing appearances to signify the passage of time… the experience of growing up has rarely been captured so authentically or with such lived-in warmth.”


“Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.” (iTunes Ed.)


The performances of Coltrane, Arquette and Ethan Hawke, as the divorced father, are memorable.
