Description

Director Mike Nichols's The Graduate is the satirical coming-of-age story that became an emotional touchstone for an entire generation.

In the mid-1960s, Benjamin Braddock, a confused college graduate, is pulled in myriad directions by family, friends, and associates just days after receiving his degree. Seduced by Mrs. Robinson, an older friend of the family, Ben carries on an affair with the married woman even as he falls for her daughter, Elaine.

However, Ben and Elaine's attempts at romance are threatened by the spiteful rage of Mrs. Robinson, who proceeds to hastily arrange Elaine's marriage to someone else, leading up to one of the most memorable endings in cinema history.

Accolades

Best Picture BAFTA Winner 1968.
Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe Winner 1968.

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
