  • Drama, Comedy
  • 1h 46m

Following his graduation from college, 21-year-old Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) evades making binding plans for his future while he begins an affair with seductive older woman Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). Benjamin soon suspects that he and his lover have little in common, a feeling magnified when he meets her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross), who is his age and with whom he feels genuinely comfortable. Over her mother’s strenuous objections, he begins a relationship with Elaine that is derailed when the truth comes out, leading Benjamin to make a mad dash to salvage his future with her.

With its sparkling screenplay from Calder Willingham and Buck Henry, and Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack, The Graduate has retained a timeless appeal over the decades.
