The eighth installment in Michael Apted's groundbreaking septennial SEVEN UP! series continues, documenting the lives of a diverse group of British children interviewed for the first time at the project's inception in 1964. From cab driver Tony to schoolmates Jackie, Lynn and Susan and the heart-breaking Neil, as they turn 56 more life-changing decisions and surprising developments are revealed.
An extraordinary look at the structure of life in the 20th century, The UP Series is, according to critic Roger Ebert, “an inspired, almost noble use of the film medium. Apted penetrates to the central mystery of life.”
