The Graduate: 50th Anniversary
Director: Mike Nichols. Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross. USA 1967. 105 mins.
This archly hilarious observation of smug, middle-class American mores remains a delight half a century after its release, as callow college graduate Dustin Hoffman is seduced by Mrs Robinson (Bancroft). Bancroft’s career-defining role is perfectly matched by Katharine Ross as her daughter, who ultimately takes Benjamin’s fancy. The Graduate confirmed director Mike Nichols’ talent for socially astute storytelling, with fabulous performances from some of his generation’s finest actors.
