Film Series: The Graduate

1967. USA. Dir: Mike Nichols. With Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft. 105 min.

 

A directionless college grad returns home for a summer of pool-floating and parental nagging – only to find himself trapped between the well-toned legs of cinema’s most iconic cougar. Set to the timeless stylings of Simon & Garfunkel, the late Nichols’ celebrated ode to post-adolescent discovery hits a resonant note of emotional poignancy.
