Peabody Award winning series! This seven disc collector's edition includes all eight films: Seven UP, 7 Plus Seven, 21 UP, 28 UP, 35 UP, 42 UP, 49 UP, and 56 UP.
"Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man."
Starting in 1964 with Seven Up, The UP Series 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, renowned director Michael 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 enigmatic Neil, as they turn 56 more life-changing decisions and surprising developments are revealed.
An astonishing, unforgettable 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."
Bonus Features Include:
Exclusive Interview: Roger Ebert talks with Michael Apted
Audio Commentary by Michael Apted (on 42 UP)
Photo Gallery for each film

...Methinks it's time for Mr. Apted to find a new cast. This one is getting a bit long in the tooth--no longer as young, cute, and full of promise as in the first few movies.Published 5 months ago by David Drake
