The Community for Fans of Patricia Arquette!
I finished up a chat with Richard Linklater about his adorable and period-perfect Me and Orson Welles by asking him about this epic project, a drama about growing up, that will catch up with a kid and his parents (Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette) year by year, from 6 through high school. |
Boyhood, it's called.
He's been working on it for years, and has a few years left to go. "I just shot another couple of days, this year's worth. His voice is lowering, a little acne's kicking up, a hint of a mustache is coming in. "And I've got five more years of his life I want to document. So it's still a few year away." Sounds a little like David Carradine's long-planned Life of Mata Hari, to star his daughter, filmed as she aged, naturally, from childhood into temptress and spy.
