Cinema 10's fifth movie of the fortieth anniversary season is 56 Up.  Screen time is Monday, March 11 at 7:15 PM at the Roxy Theater in Potsdam.



Give me a child until he is seven, goes the Jesuit aphorism, and I will give you the man. 56 Up says it's nowhere near that simple, according to Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal. In 1964, a group of seven-year-old English children were interviewed for a documentary, 7 Up. Representing as wide an economic and class sample as possible, the children have since grown up and begun to grow older, with director Michael Apted filming interviews and releasing new documentaries every seven years since. Morgenstern concludes, “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.”

56 Up
