Director Richard Linklater talks about his varied career, and his new film "Boyhood," with star Ellar Coltrane. The film was shot intermittently over a 12-year period with the same cast—which includes Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette—and tells the story of growing up through the eyes of a child named Mason. “Boyhood” opens July 11 in New York and Los Angeles.
