BOYHOOD frames the snapshots of a life lived, presenting an intimately epic coming-of-age tale unique in the history of the art form. With the commitment to an on- and off-screen story that spans more than a decade, producer/director/writer Richard Linklater stacks slices of life into a layered and emotionally affecting narrative, with enduring performances from Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke and Lorelei Linklater as the film family to the story's star Ellar Coltrane. In a world consumed by "selfies," BOYHOOD looks outward to ask, "Do we seize the moment. Or does the moment seize us?"

The trio of collaborators are being recognized for creating one of cinema's most compelling and unique romantic sagas. The genius of their approach to this extended love story lies in its unvarnished honesty. Nearly 20 years ago in the film "Before Sunrise," a romance ignited between two soul mates on a train to Vienna and defined a generation. In the decades that followed, that generation grew up and the complicated characters played by Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke have matured right along with them. In 2004's "Before Sunset" and last year's "Before Midnight," the conversation between the French Céline and American Jesse continued to unfold in real time - a sort of special cinematic effect which has long fascinated Richard Linklater.
