The 7 Up series directed by Michale Apted is something I have been revisiting every 7 years for 21 years, when I saw 35 Up in college. The latest installment is 56 Up (2012). It is a fascinating series because it gives people the chance to evaluate their lives every 7 years and it also says so much about race, class, individuals, success, happiness, family, and so much more. Many of the subjects think it is rigged and that Apted gives a preconceived perspective of his subjects. That being said it is amazing how many self-fulfilling prophecies were achieved when these people were young. The concept is from the Jesuit saying that if you give me a child at 7, I will show you the man. It is the idea that people don't really change once their personalities are established as children.
