"The Graduate" is an excellent film that is well-crafted in all aspects. It’s anchored by an impeccable screenplay that really rang true for me (apart from the crazy affairs of course). I’m sure many of us can relate to that post-graduation slump where you just wanna vegetate for the entire summer. Of course, your well-meaning pushy parents are there to constantly pressure you, constantly asking “What are you going to do with your life?”. I loved all the characters, particularly Mrs. Robinson who I both empathized with and loathed through various points of the film. Of course, I must mention the star-making performance by Dustin Hoffman as the title character. He really breathed life into the role. Finally, I liked the camera-work and the eclectic Simon & Garfunkel score which gave it a nice 60's touch.
