After three previous installments, each one covering a particular stage of human growth and development, the Up series turned age 28 into an epochal study - one that required three separate parts in order to tell its ongoing stories. This film, the third portion of 28 Up, focuses on several participants as they reflect on their current situations in life. Career obstacles, financial challenges, and the complexities of personal relationships - those that thrive as well as those that have been neglected or broken apart - become, in each unflinching scene, the stuff of riveting documentary cinema. As with all Up episodes produced after the first one, the program includes plenty of footage taken from earlier years so that viewers can easily compare the different stages.
