Originally titled Growing Up, Richard Linklater’s ambitious project that’s been filming, quietly, each year for the past decade, will finally be shown to the public at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It’s one of those movies that has many fans eager to see what comes of this latest venture from the man who gave us the Before… series. We’re told it’s shot in documentary style, and it’s a drama about a couple, played by Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, who are raising a young boy – only we get to see the characters really age, unaided by Benjamin-Button theatrics. Ellar Salmon, pictured above, plays the boy who ages from 6 to 18 in the film. This one goes into the Curious Must-See file. Sundance kicks off this Thursday, and I’ll be there reporting on the new films that are being screened there.
