Mike Nichols passed away a few days ago. He directed to some fine movies and one of them was "The Graduate". A coming of age story of a young man played perfectly by Dustin Hoffman. As the description says to the movie Dustin Hoffman portrays "A recent college graduate from an affluent family is seduced by the wife of his father's business partner, then subsequently falls in love with her daughter. This is a romantic comedy of the highest order. It made a star out of Dustin Hoffman. Thanks Mike for making such thoughtful movies!

Way back in the "60s" when I went to a Friday Night showing of "The Graduate" the entire audience got out of the chairs and applauded the movie. We all walked out with smiles, because we really liked the movies ending. The movie is timelesss because Dustin Hoffman is dealing with maturing as a young man. I have taken this movie home many times since it has come out on DVD, and it never lets me down. This is one Great Movie!

It's amazing how classic movies like this deal with issues that don't go away and grow with you as you get older. Mrs. Robinson isn't just a modern women dealing with the dissatisfaction of an overly-intelligent housewife in a post-feminist world, she may also be one of the first on-screen examples of a woman who falsely accuses a man of rape. This is not the first time I've seen this film but it is the first time I consciously noticed that Mrs. Robinson tells Elaine that Ben raped her when that couldn't be further from the truth. The naive Elaine initially believes her mother since she "knows" that parents don't cheat and they certainly don't lie, especially mothers! The commentaries for this films are interesting, especially Dustin Hoffman's as he humorously discusses dealing with body parts, co-stars and Hollywood from the perspective of a less-than-typical leading man during a strange period of transition in Hollywood and America. A classic film and as relevant as ever as it deals with alienation and history repeating itself.

This 1960’s movie, though dated, still provides great entertainment value. Starring a young Dustin Hoffman, as a straight, naïve boy, who nervously starts an affair with a worldly older woman makes for many funny situations. As he gains confidence and becomes more assertive, he meets his lover’s daughter and hopelessly falls for her, much to her mother's alarm and dismay. Set to Simon and Garfunkel music, this film is still very much worth watching.

This DVD Video is Great for ages 11 - 70! It hilarious, although; the Movie lightly suggestive! Although; this Movie is more of a Drama than a Comedy. PG 13.

A young male college graduate has no idea what he wants to do now that he finished school. Along comes Mrs. Robinson, a mature, unhappy "cougar". She seduces Benjamin, who later falls in love with her daughter. Excellent movie regarding the beginning of the sexual revolution.

Benjamin: It's like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don't make any sense to me. They're being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, I can't do this anymore.
Mrs. Robinson: You what?
Benjamin: This is all terribly wrong.
Mrs. Robinson: Do you find me undesirable?
Benjamin: Oh no, Mrs. Robinson. I think, I think you're the most attractive of all my parents' friends. I mean that.

Benjamin: Listen to me. What happened between Mrs. Robinson and me was nothing. It didn't mean anything. We might just as well have been shaking hands.
Mr. Robinson: Shaking hands? Well, that's not saying much for my wife, is it?
