"It's the ultimate collaboration," Richard Linklater told Vulture about his upcoming "Boyhood," and he's not kidding. The project has been some twelve years in the making, and the ambition alone has caused excitement (it's one of our 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2014), with Linklater spending a few weeks every year since 2002 shooting portions of this film, resulting in something he describes thusly: "It's boyhood, it's parenthood, it's everything." And now it's finally finished, and ready to see the light of day.

Boyhood

"It's the ultimate collaboration," Richard Linklater told Vulture about his upcoming "Boyhood," and he's not kidding. The project has been some twelve years in the making, and the ambition alone has caused excitement (it's one of our 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2014), with Linklater spending a few weeks every year since 2002 shooting portions of this film, resulting in something he describes thusly: "It's boyhood, it's parenthood, it's everything." And now it's finally finished, and ready to see the light of day.

The Sundance Film Festival has announced that "Boyhood" has been added to the lineup and will screen on Sunday night. It's a major surprise addition to the events in Park City that kick off this week, and it will surely be the one major, must-see attraction of the fest. Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and newcomer Ellar Salmon star in the coming-of-age film that Hawke has previously described as being like a "timelapse photography of a human being."

"It's too special to articulate," Hawke told Vulture. "It'll mean different things to different people, but if you say [what it means], it'll just sound trivial," adding that Arquette, "should get a fucking Oscar. She's so good."

No release date for this one yet, but likely much more to come in the next week or so. For now, here's what we do know about the movie: it's 164 minutes long. [THR]
