  • Critic Reviews
    "This unique enterprise, which began as a documentary experiment almost a half century ago, has grown into an inspiring testimonial to the unpredictability of the human spirit."
    Wall Street Journal

    "One of the greatest projects in television history -- and, as it turns out, in feature-film history, too..." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    "In 56 UP -- the latest installment in Michael Apteds remarkable documentary project that has followed a group of Britons since 1964, starting when they were 7 -- entire lifetimes race by with a few edits."
    New York Times

    "[A] rich portrait of how individual lives progress, and how age shapes expectations and experience."
    A.V. Club

    "One pleasure of 56 UP is the ability to continue to eavesdrop on private lives, to see how things have turned out for these individuals as compared to what they hoped for in earlier episodes."
    Los Angeles Times

    "These people are all bonded through the continuity of this remarkable idea..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
