MEMBERS-ONLY / FANDOR INDIE MIXER : Boyhood (plus Father's Day brunch, Rick Linklater & cast in person!)


11:00am – noon – Father’s Day brunch
noon-3:00pm – screening of Boyhood

“Lovingly assembled and acted with such grace and ease that it scarcely looks like acting at all. Midway through the film, I found myself wondering whether I’d ever seen anything remotely resembling it before.” — Xan Brooks, The Guardian

“The cumulative impact of seeing something resembling a life unfold over a mere two hours and forty minutes is overwhelming. ‘Boyhood’ is Linklater’s third masterpiece in the past decade, and it should only affect anyone who’s ever been someone else’s sibling, child, parent, lover or friend.” — William Goss,

Join us at 11am for a pre-screening Father’s Day brunch — and stick around for a Q&A with Rick Linklater, plus cast members Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater! At Sundance 2014, Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise, Waking Life, Slacker, School of Rock) unveiled a total revelation, one filmed with the same cast in secrecy over twelve years, a tiny linear chunk at a time. No mere gimmick — in fact, no gimmick at all — the result is one of the most powerful films of Linklater’s career, and a transcendent piece of history to be remembered alongside the 7 Up doc series, and Truffaut’s “Antoine Doinel” cycle. We watch newcomer Ellar Coltrane (7 years old at the start, and a college freshman at the end) grow up in real time before our eyes, as Linklater’s tableaux capture snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations, weddings and divorces, and all the quiet moments of life in-between. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette play the parents, equally captivating in their own story arcs. Innovative on a formalist level and deeply satisfying on an emotional level, this is simply a fantastically unique theatrical experience.
Dir. Richard Linklater, 2014, DCP, 164 min.
