    Starting in 1964 with Seven Up renowned director Michael Apted has explored this Jesuit maxim. The original concept 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 has been back to talk to the same subjects examining the progression of their lives. From cab driver Tony to East End schoolmates Jackie Lynn and Susan and the heart-breaking Neil we see as they enter their 40's how close these subjects are to realizing their ambitions. An extraordinary look at the structure of life in the 20th century The Up Series is according to Roger Ebert ""an inspired almost noble use of the film medium. Apted penetrates to the central mystery of life.""
