Description

Benjamin is home from school, having graduated with honors from college with no idea of what to do with his life. Mrs. Robinson, a close family friend old enough to be his mother, tells him that she's "available." As Ben begins the affair, he finds that it fills his time, but depresses him. Under pressure from his parents and Mr. Robinson, he agrees to take out the daughter, Elaine Robinson. Mrs. Robinson becomes furious and Ben finds himself very attracted to Elaine. Everything explodes and Elaine returns to school. Ben follows her, having decided to marry her. As he begins to make progress with Elaine, her parents descend and arrange a hasty marriage to another boy. Ben follows to disrupt the wedding and win Elaine.

Review

"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 it's still a joy to see Dustin Hoffman's bemused Benjamin and Anne Bancroft's 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
