Richard Linklater’s unique, time-stamped family drama follows a divorced couple (Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette) and their son over a 12-year period. Literally. Linklater and the cast shot the film for a few weeks every year starting in 2002. Audacious stuff, and it works. Plus, as the titular “boy,” newcomer Ellar Coltrane is a breakout star. In theaters July 11th. More picks this way.
