By Scott Goldfine

Director Michael Apted (“Coal Miner’s Daughter”) has put together the fifth in a series of British documentaries that examine the lives of 14 individuals. Males and females from various socioeconomic backgrounds are revealed through interviews every seven years from ages 7-35.

While the format is a bit tedious, about two-thirds of the segments offer fascinating personal and societal insights. Unrated.
