21 Up is the second follow-up to the original film Seven Up. Michael Apted, who later directed The World is Not Enough, continues his documentary saga that began when his subjects which are 14 students from varied social backgrounds, that were 7 years old. As young adults finally grown out of the awkward teenage years, the participants share similar worries and dreams, displaying humanity, honesty. The differences from when they were seven to now young adults. Success, failure, marriage and childbirth, poverty, illness--almost every possible element of the human experience passes before Apted's camera. And while each of the children's stories is riveting, the viewer will undoubtedly be gripped by the story of Neil, a shy boy who endures incredible hardships. A one-of-a-kind series and sociological experiment, The Up Series is required viewing for not only documentary fans but any viewer with a curiosity about and concern for their fellow humans. 21 Up ends this saga of documentaries.
