The Graduate: 50th Anniversary


Dir. Mike Nichols | USA 1967 | 105 min | 15
 
With The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman challenged conventional notions of the Hollywood leading man and became an overnight star. Hoffman’s second film role earned him an Oscar nomination and sees him playing Benjamin Braddock, a directionless graduate romantically entangled with both the predatory Mrs Robinson and her daughter Elaine, his true love. A huge financial and critical success, the film turned Hoffman into an overnight sensation and proved to Hollywood that leading men didn’t need conventional looks in order to carry a film. With America’s youth feeling uncertainty and doubt partly due to the country’s deepening involvement in Vietnam, The Graduate spoke to them and a significant worldwide audience. As the film reaches its 50th anniversary, we are delighted to screen this newly restored digital print.
