“I really want to thank the actors that I got to stand shoulder to shoulder with in this film, in particular my good friend Tom Hardy who is a beast, an unbelievable talent who was there every single day, who I know in real life would never bury me alive and leave me out in the cold to die like that.”
'Boyhood’ is nominated for Golden Globes in the categories of Best Motion Picture, Drama and Best Director (Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette are also nominated.)
Director Richard Linklater on planning for scenes years in advance:
“Even as I structured [the film] and knew the trajectories of the characters and all the physicality — they’re moving here, there’s a divorce, you get your degree, you move again … I kind of had all that worked out, but I was kind of looking forward to the new ideas that would emerge in the process.
I had notes that I knew I wanted to hit later in the film that I knew I couldn’t even articulate yet. I knew, 'Oh, that will be eight or nine years before I truly will know the right tone for that scene, but there it sits as a placeholder way into the future.’”
