Are You Trying To Seduce Me?

“This is Benjamin, He’s a little worried about his future”. I just finished watching the film, The Graduate” directed by Mike Nichols, staring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft. God I love this movie. I think everyone should own a copy of this classic. Even me. So if anyone out there would like to buy it for me for my birthday that would be fine and dandy! Kidding…I was going to buy it this week anyways. But I do love presents.
The film tells the story of Benjamin Braddock (played by Dustin Hoffman), a recent university graduate with no well-defined aim in life, who is seduced by an older woman, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), and then proceeds to fall in love with her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross). HOT DAMN Mrs. Robinson! YIKES.
A few facts:
In 1996, The Graduate was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. It ranked as the seventh greatest film of all time on AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Movies.
Adjusted for inflation, the film is #19 on the list of highest-grossing films in the United States and Canada.
