  • One of the best films of the 1960s- and maybe even in the whole coming-of-age genre!

    This movie is just absolutely remarkable in every way, and still remains a classic to this day. You can't get more iconic than this. The Graduate is flawlessly written, deftly acted, and superbly touches us with its unconventionality and ultimate power. It captures the era of the 60s, yet is also profoundly timely. Hoffman's angst is relatable for every young adult watching the film, and the nostalgia and shallowness of American suburbia is also quite relatable to anyone who has spent at least a year living in the suburbs. Anne Bancroft is just exceptional and utterly ruthless as the troubled and tragic Mrs. Robinson, making for an unforgettable performance. The film's aura--the iconic soundtrack and iconic cinematographic choices--is captivating. Ultimately The Graduate is more than a funny, nostalgic movie: it is triumphant. It is a triumph of the human mind and the human spirit.

    Such a great early Dustin Hoffman movie. Love it! iTunes must have every one of his flicks... except Little Big Man. A 70's icon of a film. We need this one too! iTunes! make it available.
  • More than a Classic, Defines an Era

    The music alone defines the generation but as director Mike Nichols notes, the themes are universal - man and woman, entry to adulthood, and last but not least, becoming like ones parents, as evidenced by the last scene. See this at a college campus on their Graduation Day and feel the moment!
