Ellar Coltrane in “Boyhood”.

“Boyhood” by Richard Linklater is a wonderful quiet story. It’s like a Eric Rohmer movie but more down to earth and more fun to watch. The songs are neatly woven into the story and help define the characters and the time.

From the very beginning the filmmakers make it clear that they understand their business. They start the title sequence with “Yellow” by Coldplay and set the thoughtful mood for the entire movie.

In this Spotify playlist most of the songs from the movie are included. It was inspired by Indiewire. Enjoy.
