The Graduate screening
Sunday, April 21, 2019 @ 16:00–17:46
The UofR Cinema Group will screen The Graduate (Mike Nichols, U.S. 1967, 106 min.) in Lattimore Hall, Room 201.
One of the most beloved American films of all time, The Graduate earned Mike Nichols a best director Oscar, brought the music of Simon and Garfunkel to a wider audience, and introduced the world to a young actor named Dustin Hoffman. Benjamin Braddock (Hoffman) has just finished college and is already lost in a sea of confusion and barely contained angst when he becomes sexually involved with a friend of his parents', the indomitable Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), before turning his attention to her college-age daughter (Katharine Ross). Visually imaginative and impeccably acted, with a clever, endlessly quotable script by Buck Henry (based on the novel by Charles Webb), The Graduate had the kind of cultural impact that comes along only once in a generation.
