The Graduate Reviews
The one character of whom I really would have wanted to know more about is Mrs. Robinson. She shows a deep, life like persona which sucks the audience in. But also her character suffers at the end of the movie with forcing her daughter into a marriage alike hers for nor logical reason whatsoever.
The music from Simon & Garfunkel is timeless, no argument there.
Profundamente reflexiva, The Graduate abarca uno de los momentos mas trascendentales e importantes de nuestras vidas reflejado en una magistral visión de Mike Nichols. Ademas las exquisitas actuaciones de Michael Douglas y Anne Bancroft no tienen precio.
Hoffman plays Ben Braddock the 20 year old college graduate of the title.
The story is based on his fears, hopes for his future life set amongst a backdrop of romantic situations with an older woman and someone who he falls in love with.
The film has an excellent Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack that has you humming lines like 'Jesus loves you more than you know!'
The Director of Photography uses some clever camera/lens shots throughout the film. The 1967 shoot oozes quality.
Directed by British helmer Mike Nichols The film is an excellent example of the new wave of movies that were released towards the end of the sixties into the seventies and rightly has its positive reviews.
