Boyhood

Boyhood


"... [I]t's almost Joycean in its appreciation of the scruffy magic of everyday life." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)


Filmed over 12 years, Richard Linklater's latest is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane). Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood is a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and impossible to watch without thinking about one's own journey through life.

Richard Linklater. 2014. 165 m. R. USA. IFC Films.

Also starring: Kelly Reilly and Chris O'Dowd.

Magic in the Moonlight

Magic in the Moonlight


Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy Englishman with an inflated ego and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. On a mission to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone), Stanley travels to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family where Sophie is staying with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden) and presents himself as a benign businessman. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word.

Woody Allen. 2014. 98 m. PG-13. USA. Sony Pictures Classics.
