“IT TOOK A REALLY DIFFERENT SKILL SET...AND I WAS EXCITED BY THAT.”


when I saw it, my character was also watching. And my character immediately had a lot of thoughts, like when they went on that little hang out with their friends, and he lied to his mom, I was just thinking, ‘What are you doing, I don’t like that guy, you’re never hanging out with him again, I’m coming to get you right now...’ My character just started thinking, while I was watching the movie.” Of course, the actors were very different from their


characters. “[Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater] were both only children, they didn’t really know what that sibling dynamic was like, so they were playing it very early on.” She spoke of the haircut scene: “Rick called


[Ellar] and said, ‘Don’t cut your hair this year, we’re gonna do a haircutting scene.’ Ellar was dying to get a haircut. He looks really bummed in the scene, but he was really happy... And it was one take, just that. So we were like, can he pull it off, or will he just start laughing?” I asked her about people’s reactions to the film. “For seven years I was doing a TV show, and people would say to me, ‘You used to make these art movies, and you’d work with these really interesting directors,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, I still am.’ And they would look at me like, yeah, right. I was like, ‘I’m making a movie right now; I’m making a really important art movie right now!’ I told so many


people, and so did Ethan, and we both had this experience that nobody cared. It wasn’t interesting and their eyes would glaze over and they’d get really bored...” She laughed. “And I didn’t understand it because the second I heard about it, I thought it was incredible. But they didn’t.” But, once the film premiered at the Sundance Film


Festival, people came around. “You know, it’s such a personal, beautiful project, and we cared so much about these characters and story and experience, and each other, and I was worried about giving it to the world... but people really come up to you and tell you personal things, and are moved, and introspective, and they want to call their mom, and have a different perspective on their life...and so the love we made has been returned, and it’s been incredible.” And the film truly is incredible. “Boyhood” will be


playing at the Midtown Cinema, and I recommend that you don’t miss it.
