Looking for films and literature based on a theme of an older person discovering that many people younger than they are, are old themselves. Meta-theme: the meaning of aging.

The Up Series (7up, 14up, 21up, 28up, etc... 56up JUST came out on Netflix!) A series of documentaries that capture the lives of about 12 people as they age. Starting from age 7. They are all 56 now. Amazing. Must see.
