7 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fifth chapter in the ongoing seven-year cycle of documentaries catches up with all but two of the original kids, after following their development from childhood through repressed adolescence to (mostly) hopeful young adulthood, and here to a more or less stable maturity. The changes in the past seven years are less dramatic than those revealed in '28 Up', but with each new installment the series grows more rich and provocative, and seeing the latest episode is like visiting old friends.

Some of the stories have taken surprising turns: the upper class snobbery of Andrew and John (who refused to appear in the previous film) has mellowed with age. Destitute Neil is doing community theater in the Shetland Islands. And the trio of friends (Jackie, Lynn and Sue), whose lives were the least interesting seven years earlier now each deserve their own separate film (one of them is suffering, with bitterness, from an obscure neurological disorder). Director Michael Apted's socio-political assumptions have long since fallen by the wayside; the series might have started as an experiment in social upbringing with an eye on class distinctions, but if anything the films prove that time is the great equalizer.
