Renowned director Michael Apted ("Coal Miner's Daughter," "Gorky Park," "Gorillas in the Mist") has doggedly pursued the series as the children have grown into adults, navigating the divide between childhood dreams and adult realities. "49 Up" revisits questions of love, marriage, career, class and prejudice - discovering unexpected turns in individual lives and surprising views of the Up film series itself.
