56 Up


2013 | 143 minutes | Rated NR

Michael Apted's series began in 1964 as a portrait of a group of 7-year-olds from all over England, selected to represent the extremes of a classist society, and it returns every seven years. 56 Up is maybe the most satisfying of all the films so far. Its tone is calm. The subjects are comfortable with themselves. "As time has passed, they've become much less interested in what I want them to do," Apted told Radio Times last year. The eloquence of their defiance is finally up to Apted's challenge: They are his equals now, and the series has become fully a dialogue. (JEN GRAVES)
