WATCH: Boyhood Trailer Shows Actors Literally Growing Up Over 12 Years

Truth rating: 10

Boyhood is like no movie you’ve seen before.

Starting in 2002, director Richard Linklater began filming his then-six-year-old star Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette — and then periodically shot scenes over the next 12 years.

The result is an epic coming-of-age movie in which we actually see the main character grow up on screen.
