The purpose of the film was to discover whether or not the children had pre-determined lives due to their backgrounds. The director would return every seven years to analyze the progress the children have made in their lives. Each child had their own opinions about how their future will be. The children who I found most interesting were Suzy and Paul. For this paper, I will observe the different attitudes and behavior of these two children, how these children react to certain situations in their life, and how their behavior has changed throughout their life (Marquis, 45-60).

Most older, wealthy people only show interest to those who have the same class as them. As a result, Suzy resembles a wealthy person at a young age. Suzy throughout this interview and past interviews seems to be honest, but uninterested in the program. She left school at sixteen and traveled to Paris. At the interview, she was asked about marriage and babies. Suzy says that she has little faith on marriage and not many views on marriage and as for babies she has no intention on having them because she is not fond of them. A remarkable change happens to Suzy at the age of twenty-eight. She was happy and smiling.
