Plot Summary

In 1964, a film crew interviewed seven-year-old English kids: five or six from privilege, a Yorkshire farm lad, East-End girls, and boys from a children's home. Every seven years, Michael Apted re-interviews those willing (two declined this time). At 42, careers are stuck or flourishing; marriages are strong, shaky, or over (and Bruce recently married for the first time). They're dealing with parents' dying, and children coming-of-age. One is a single mom with young sons. One is remarried, but how are the five children from his first marriage? Lyn and Jackie face health problems with down-to-earth lucidity. Neil, on the margin at 28 and 35, has a glorious story of friendship at 42. Written by

Quotes Neil Hughes: Well, I'm not married. I value all experience. I feel that part of my life hasn't happened. I'm not homosexual therefore I do hanker after a stable relationship with a woman. I've never been able to achieve that and I think I'm somehow deficient in... my ability to react to the needs of others through not having had that relationship.
