The Graduate
Ben Braddock (Dustin Hoffman), fresh out of college and disillusioned with life, finds himself stuck between his older lover, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), and her daughter (Katharine Ross).

A milestone in American film history!  Stanley Kauffmann

A landmark! Just as pungent  and funny  as ever!  Leonard Maltin

The funniest American comedy of the year... Hoffman is so painfully awkward and
ethical that we are forced to admit we would act pretty much as he does, even in his
most extreme moments. Bancroft, in a tricky role, is magnificently sexy, shrewish, and
self-possessed enough to make the seduction convincing... Benjamins acute honesty
and embarrassment are so accurately drawn that we hardly know whether to laugh or to
look inside ourselves.  Roger Ebert
