Fireside Chats: Richard Linklater Reveals Why 'Boyhood' Took 12 Years to Film
Richard Linklater's film was shot in 39 days over the course of 12 years, chronicling one boy's childhood. "He was 6 when I first met him," Linklater tells THR. "It was such a leap to go, 'Wow, what kind of teenager are you going to be?'" Co-star Ethan Hawke said: "Lots of things had been documented in a non-fiction sense over time, but to tell a story over such a long period of time seemed [to be] just a wonderful opportunity."
