- Mike Nichols
- Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross
A recent college graduate with no direction in life returns home only to find himself trapped between the seductive enticements of the older woman next-door and the love he feels for her daughter. “No other movie of the 60s . . . turned the angst of the counterculture into popular culture like The Graduate” (Film Forum), which was nominated for 7 Academy Awards, and won Best Director for Mike Nichols. A true film classic, this was the movie that made Dustin Hoffman a star, made “Mrs. Robinson” a household name, and revolutionized movie soundtracks with its score of Simon & Garfunkel hits.
