56 Up

  • Director: Michael Apted
  • Genre(s): Documentary

  • Running Time: 144 min

Director Michael Apted revisits the same group of British-born adults he has been chronicling in documentaries every seven years since they were each 7 years old. The original concept, starting in 1964’s “Seven Up,” was to interview 14 children from diverse backgrounds from all over England, asking them about their lives and their dreams for the future. Every seven years, Apted, a researcher for Seven Up, has been back to talk to them, examining the progression of their lives. 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. (First Run Features)

"It is a mystery, this business of life. I can't think of any under cinematic undertaking that allows us to realize that more deeply."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"56 Up is as good a point as any to get hooked on the magnificent half-century series of documentaries, beginning in 1964 with "7 Up.""
- Kyle Smith, New York Post
"This unique enterprise, which began as a documentary experiment almost a half century ago, has grown into an inspiring testimonial to the unpredictability of the human spirit."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
