'The Graduate' is many things. It's a solid presentation of the uncertainty one has between schooling and the adult years. It's also a tantalizing drama about a racy affair. But mostly, it's a portrait of the choices we make whilst in a state of rebellion and the possible repeat effect they could bestow upon those close to us. Terrific performances and music selection carry this point to a finale that many interpret differently. Whether you believe the ending signals a happy victory or a hasty retreat, there's no denying that the events beforehand still resonate with the target age group.

Here's to you. Uncomfortable situations abound. Anne Bancroft was wonderful.

Before Wes Anderson, Mike Nichols owned at making quirky indie comedies with socially-awkward characters, thoughtful pacing, and cool soundtracks (can't get much cooler than Simon & Garfunkel.) This movie is a triumph of an auteur - completely realized with unique visual style and yet, at the same time, full of an earnest heart that shines through in the final scenes. Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft hit all the right beats and the film itself is very, very funny in a low-key sort of way.

A condescending creation.

Keeping the human spirit alive can be more complex than one may think.
After all, what is the 'human spirit'? The meaning of life?
Is it to experience unorthodox things more often, to explore the stretchable boundaries of youth, or to rebel against what everyone may think is the right thing for you?

The Graduate may well be the most complicated, over-analyzed and misinterpreted movie ever made, because moviegoers and critics alike talk so many theories into the subject that it becomes clouded.
Precisely because it is so convoluted in terms of life, this movie succeeds in so many ways.
My general perception of the story differs every time I watch this movie, that is why it is such a delight to watch.

Character Benjamin is written with such precise detail and dialogue that by the ...

"Mrs Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?"

21-year-old Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) has just graduated from college and has no clue about what he wants to do with his life. His upper-crust parents mistakenly think that he'll probably go to graduate school, after some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Mrs. Robinson, (Anne Bancroft) the wife of his father's business partner of course had plans of her own. She tries to seduce him, and he eventually lets her, in private liaisons at an upscale downtown hotel. The affair continues on for a while with little problems, that is, until, Elaine Robinson (Katharine Ross), the Robinson's college-bound daughter, comes home from Berkeley and Ben suddenly finds some direction for the first in his life since he came home from college. He now knows what he wants because suddenly he's in lo...

The Graduate review

Innovative, inspirational and entertaining film that could (and should) have won best picture. "No - I meant with your future, Your life.... Well - that's a little hard to say." Revisiting/reviewing a popular classic since it has been in so many best of movie lists. The scenes with Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) and Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) were memorable.

It had a few dull and prolonged moments which felt like a music video. The plot sustains because of the soundtrack, cinematography and performances all around. The songs fit in perfectly with the mood of the scenes and the screenplay was superb. Some memorable lines: Mr. Robinson - "You'll never be young again" Ben - "My whole life is such a waste." It's themes of a doubtful future, infidelity, seduction, secret liv...
