(USA / 2014 / Directed by Richard Linklater)
R / 163 mins.
Rare is the opportunity to see a cast age naturally over the span of a single film. Ambitiously, Richard Linklater (Before Midnight, Waking Life, Slacker) filmed this intimate domestic epic on and off since 2002, following Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from first grade through his first year of college.
The result is a deeply moving story made up of unlikely moments. Structured like a series of short films, each covering one of those 12 years, we watch as the characters grapple with life’s joys, compromises, and discoveries. Watching Coltrane age in real time along with co-stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and scene-stealing Lorelei Linklater, we see deeper into their characters. For instance, Olivia (Arquette) is shown early on reading the first Harry Potter novel to her children, and in due time we watch as they eagerly line up at midnight to purchase the sixth volume. Like the best fiction, Boyhood conveys greater truth about coming to terms with the world at large, and the cumulative impact of seeing something resembling a life unfold over the course of one film is overwhelming. A humanist heartwarmer, the film celebrates getting through life’s muddles as a heroic achievement. In English and Spanish with subtitles.

When Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next.

Celebrate 100 Years of Charlie Chaplin’s “Tramp” … with live music by David Arner

In Rhinebeck 
August 3
Sun 1:00*
(USA / Directed by Henry Lehrman & Charlie Chaplin)
Unrated / 90 mins. 
* With live musical accompaniment by David Arner. 
In 1914, a funny looking man wearing a funky bowler hat and carrying a cane wandered into The Kid Auto Races in Venice, California and ended up delighting the confused crowd with his antics.
An early version of guerilla filmmaking (no permits were issued, no one knew who he was), Chaplin’s performance was recorded on film and exhibited in theaters for the first time as the beloved character “the Tramp.” In celebration of the character’s 100th anniversary, we’re bringing a selection of newly restored Tramp shorts to Upstate Films, with live accompaniment provided by David Arner. Titles incude: Kid Auto Races, The Rink, Behind the Screen, The Floorwalker…
