4 out of 10 A Classic
Claire from Dublin, 03 Oct 2008
This was recommended by a friend and I put it in my rental queue without knowing what it was. Am so glad I watched it! I'd never realised how many scenes and references in popular culture are derived from this film! The film itself is very good with Dustin Hoffman playing an excellent part as the story unfolds from the point of view of his character, a, sometimes creepy but always earnest young man with his futire looming ahead of him.

2.5 out of 10 The Graduate
Jennifer from Donegal, 13 May 2009
An iconic film of the 60s of a young man's sexual exploits with an older woman and then falling fall her daughter.There aren't any explicit scenes though they were probably racy for the times.The pace is a bit slow but there is a somewhat unexpected ending as one hopes the outcome will be what it is but Hoffman's character seems destined to be a loser.Not bad pace lets the movie down-music goes some way in rectifying it.

Oldie but a goodie. One of those films that everyone has to see at least once in their lives.

What's it about....
Just one word: plastic. Are you here for an affair? These lines and others became cultural touchstones, as 1960s youth rebellion seeped into the California upper middle-class in Mike Nichols' landmark hit. Mentally adrift the summer after graduating from college, suburbanite Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) would rather float in his parents' pool than follow adult advice about his future. But the exhortation of family friend Mr. Robinson (Murray Hamilton) to seize every...
