In The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman plays a listless college graduate whose very listlessness becomes the motivation for making mistakes, most prominently having an affair with an older woman (that's non-scandalous casting, he and Anne Bancroft only have a 6-year age difference) and then with her daughter. A less wealthy character might not have been able to afford any of this, but the film certainly remains relevant in our age of stay-at-home twentysomethings, and besides, Mike Nichols' direction is so slick, so peculiar, so ARRESTING, that it makes the movie seem entirely modern. I mean, I've seen well over 2000 thousand films in my life, and his direction still had a powerful revelatory effect on me. You know, like you might have felt the first time you saw a Tarantino picture and the camera was doing all sorts of things it shouldn't have been doing. Like that. Makes sense. This is a story about breaking rules. The director ought to break a few himself.
Love the soundtrack
So much second-hand embarrassment from this one. :D The second half of the movie is utterly redundant and boring though.
