’56 Up’, the latest entry in Michael Apted’s documentary series, gets a trailer

56 Up

The Up Series is one of the most fascinating documentary subjects currently running. Beginning in 1964, the first documentary in the series, 7 Up, spoke to a wide cross-section of British children, all aged 7, about their lives; subsequently, a new documentary has revisited the same group every seven years, chronicling their lives as they’ve grown up, encountered obstacles, and generally made their way through life. With the latest entry in the series, 49 Up, having come in 2005, the time was ripe for another look at the subjects of the documentary, and now news of the next installment, titled 56 Up, has been released; the film will get a limited theatrical run in the US, following its television premiere in the UK in 2012. Directors Michael Apted and Paul Almond return to helm the project once again, and a trailer has now been released, which can be seen below.

There was once a time when I thought Scarface was the best movie ever made, and Home Improvement was appointment television for me. While I still have a soft spot for both, those days of naivete are long behind me, as I’ve subsequently managed to broaden my horizons. Ambition is the most important part of a movie for me; if it tries to do something unique, tell a well-worn story in a different way, or take on large themes in a honest manner, I can forgive many flaws. If there’s one movie fact I’ve learnt after all these years, it’s that Employee of The Month is to Office Space what fast food is to fresh fruit.
