Directed by Michael Apted. Are our adult lives predetermined by our earliest influences and by the social class in which we are born and raised? This is the question British documentarian Michael Apted first explored in the 1964 TV documentary Seven Up!, which profiled 14 diverse British schoolchildren, all age seven. Apted revisited the question, and his aging subjects, in follow-up films every seven years. 63 Up is the series’ ninth and perhaps final installment. Like its predecessors, it promises to be an emotional group portrait full of surprises. “A worthy cap to one of the boldest experiments in world cinema” —Variety. Cleveland premiere.
