A Resonating Story!
If there is one movie from the 1960’s that my family loves to rave about, it’s this film, the Graduate. I can see why my family loves this film. It’s a coming-of-age film set in the time period my parents grew up. A childhood classic, my father would say. As for myself, a generation or two later, I found this to be mostly a great film. If I had a complaint, I would say the film is very outdated and it grew old ..fast. But the themes of post-college troubles are very much prevalent in today’s world. I liked this film not only because of resonating themes, it’s the movie that introduced us to the careers of a legendary director in Mike Nichols and a fantastic actor in Dustin Hoffman. I also liked the soundtrack created by the folk-rock duo, Simon and Garfunkel. Their songs are very catchy and easy to hum along to. Of course, now we all know where the song, “Mrs. Robinson” comes from.
Mike Nichol’s film is about a young man named Ben who has just graduated from college. His parents expect great things out of him. At a homecoming party, he drives the wife of his father’s business partner home and he begins an affair with Mrs. Robinson. But things get complicated when he falls for a girl named Elaine. But Elaine happens to be the daughter of Mrs. Robinson!
The film is very well-acted. Anne Bancroft does a wonderful job as the sexy, manipulative Mrs. Robinson. Dustin Hoffman shows everyone why he is a great actor. He kills every scene he is in. I think Katherine Ross did a solid job as Elaine, although we don’t meet her until late in the film. For those who are fans of the 90’s TV Show “Boy Meets World,” you may recognize Mr. Feeney himself, William Daniels as Ben’s father.
Overall, The Graduate may be a bit old and weary, but it tells such a wise story with great acting and fantastic music, that it’s hard to not see pass those rusty pipes. As I said before, this film has themes that are easily prevalent nearly fifty years after the film’s release. It’s one of those coming-of-age stories that shall stand the test of time, even if only because of the themes. This is a very memorable film to say the least.
