56 Up: Art Museum /Mama Santa's

This is a film I just have to see, and I hope some others can join me.

"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.

REVIEWS

I think the best thing about this movie (and the entire series) is that it forces the viewer to think about their own lives. It's kind of an awakening experience. ~Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central

It shows that life is what happens when you're busy making other plans. And how, in case we forget, every age can predict the next. ~Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

Here is an article published in the Jan. 7 edition of the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/07/booming/56-up-shows-generations-commitment-to-family.html?_r=0                 While the film apparently focuses mainly on social class in Britain, the author of the piece points out that it says much about one of the best qualities of the generation of its subjects: their commitment to their families.

    This is a first. Apparently, a small group of people did not find the main group. We were waiting for you at Mama Santas. Glad you enjoyed it as everyone in the main group did also.

      The auditorium was packed, and while we waited outside the doors after the movie, I was asking random people if they were there for the meetup. Guess I asked the wrong ones :-(
