'56 Up': U.K.'s child reality stars grapple with middle age
Posted on Friday, Feb 22, 2013
Filmmaker Michael Apted's extraordinary documentary series, launched in 1964 with Seven Up - profiling a group of British 7-year-olds from working-class and upper-class backgrounds - and revisiting its subjects every seven years since, is now firmly in middle age. There have been marriages and divorce. Children growing up to have their own children. Parents dying. Career successes and setbacks. Happiness, regrets, hope.
