Better Late Than Never! Boyhood is Officially Coming in Philippine Cinemas!!

Richard Linklater's 12 years in the making drama 'Boyhood' is officially getting the big thumbs up release on selected cinemas soon in the Philippines! Since a specified date has not been confirmed by the studio (Columbia Pictures Philippines), it's but a relief since it's definitely a long wait after it's premiere on July 11 on US theaters. I already saw the film, and it was a marvelous experience. The amount of work has been done here really paid off, chronicling a young man's life upto adulthood. It's more than a film, I have to say.
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, this film is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. This drama 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. The film 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.



Get to know Mason... soon on Philippine cinemas!
