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!
