The Graduate

from the manufacturer

Nominated for seven Academy Awards(r) and winner for Best Director, this ground breaking and wildly hilarious (The Boston Globe) social satire launched the career of two-time Oscar(r)-winner Dustin Hoffman and cemented the reputation of acclaimed director Mike Nichols. Pulsating with the rebellious spirit of the 60s and a haunting score sung by Simon and Garfunkel, The Graduate is truly a landmark film (Leonard Maltin). Shy Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) returns home from college with an uncertain future. Then the wife of his fathers business partner, the sexy Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), seduces him, and the affair only deepens his confusion. That is, until he meets the girl of his dreams (Katharine Ross). But theres one problem: shes Mrs. Robinsons daughter!

Few films have defined a generation as The Graduate did. The alienation, the nonconformity, the intergenerational romance, the blissful Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack--they all served to lob a cultural grenade smack into the middle of 1967 America, ultimately making the film the third most profitable up to that time. Seen from a later perspective, its radical chicness has dimmed a bit, yet its still a joy to see Dustin Hoffmans bemused Benjamin and Anne Bancrofts deliciously decadent, sardonic Mrs. Robinson. The script by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham is still offbeat and dryly funny, and Mike Nichols, who won an Oscar for his direction, has just the right, light touch. --Anne Hurley Beyond The Graduate Amazon. coms Essential 100 Simon and Garfunkel: The Concert in Central Park More from Director Mike Nichols Stills from The Graduate
