Restless young college graduate Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) arrives for his homecoming party and meets the beguiling Mrs Robinson (Anne Bancroft). They soon begin an affair, but Benjamin finds himself torn between his older lover and his burgeoning romance with her daughter Elaine. Superb performances from Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman, Oscar-winning direction from Mike Nichols, a sharp comedic script and a Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack make The Graduate one of the best-loved films of the 1960's.
