The Graduate (1967) Director: Mike Nichols
“Mrs Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?”
An witty exploration of the confusion of youth, portrayed with comic brilliance by Dustin Hoffman, who plays “Benjamin Braddock” a recent graduate who begins an aimless, wandering existence when he returns home from university to live with his parents. Anne Bancroft plays the legendary “Mrs Robinson”, a family friend who approaches Benjamin with a very indecent proposal.
The accompanying musical soundtrack by Simon and Garfunkel is a significant work of art in its own right.
