What began in 1964 when a BBC film crew interviewed fourteen seven year-olds from a cross section of English society asking them about their lives and their hopes for the future spawned a follow-up feature every seven years.
Now 56, we revisit cab driver East Ender Tony who hoped to be a jockey, schoolmates Jackie, Lynn and Susan, the heart-breaking Neil, and the others as they turn 56 and we witness life-changing decisions and surprising developments. An extraordinary look at the structure of life in our time,The UP Series is, according to critic Roger Ebert, “an inspired, almost noble use of the film medium. Michael Apted penetrates to the central mystery of life.”
