Fascinating Concept For A Film

Just saw this article about Richard Linklater's 12-year project, Boyhood, which is premiering in less than a week at Sundance.  It's a fictional story that was captured by the director over a dozen years, allowing the cast (especially the young boy) to actually age as the events progress.  How cool is that?

The fact that it involves Ethan Hawke makes it even more interesting to me, as Linklater and Hawke (along with the wonderful Julie Delpy) have gotten together three times before to create the incredible Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight series of films.  On the strength of that alone, we'll be all over Boyhood, the first chance we get to see it.
