Patricia Arquette has won the best actress award from the New York Film Critics Circle for her new movie Boyhood. She heard the news while doing press to promote the movie.
Directed by Richard Linklater (School of Rock, Before Sunset), Boyhood tells the story of a boy named Mason from the ages of 5-18. It is notable in that the entire production – cast and crew alike – took 12 years off between filming the story of the five year old and the story of the 18 year old.
