Description

Does social class determine our life path? Michael Apted's ambitious film study continues its probe into the triumph and tragedy of the human condition. When a cross-section of seven-year-olds were interviewed for 7 Up in 1964 it was immediately evident that their social backgrounds influenced their attitudes towards life. Now, at the age of 56, the group are once more brought together and, with the benefit of hindsight, assess whether their lives have been ruled by circumstance or self-determination.
