REVIEW - We are apparently in the middle of a Boyhood backlash so now is the ideal time to share my rant about Linklater's film that up until now got stellar reviews.
I can’t say that it wasn’t a grand idea to shoot the same actors over 12 years or that Ellar Coltrane isn’t adorable. What bothers me is that Linklater couldn’t resist making Ethan Hawke a hero, again. Spoilers
INTERVIEW - Based in London, Bella Howard is a busy photographer, constantly flying around the world to shoot for Vogue UK, I-D Magazine… to name just a few of her prestigious employers.
