“The organizational scheme is laudable—Shary includes essays on individual films, auteurs, decades, and national cinemas. Future works on boyhood in cinema could build on any of these organizational categories to contribute to this nascent field…Highly Recommended.” • Choice


Drawing from political sociology, pop psychology, and film studies, Cinemas of Boyhood explores the important yet often overlooked subject of boys and boyhood in film. This collected volume features an eclectic range of films from British and Indian cinemas to silent Hollywood and the new Hollywood of the 1980s, culminating in a comprehensive overview of the diverse concerns surrounding representations of boyhood in film.

Timothy Shary is the author of numerous books on youth and film, including Boyhood: A Young Life on Screen (Routledge, 2017), and Generation Multiplex: The Image of Youth in Contemporary American Cinema (University of Texas Press, 2002; revised 2014). He is co-author of Fade to Gray: Aging in American Cinema (University of Texas Press, 2016), and his publications have appeared in The Journal of Film and Video, Film Quarterly, The Journal of Popular Culture, The Journal of Popular Film and Television, and Boyhood Studies. He teaches at Eastern Florida State College.
