Graduate, The

Comedy, Drama

A disillusioned college graduate finds himself torn between his older lover and her daughter.

The critical consensus

Fifty years after it first appeared, Mike Nichols’ film (re-released in a restored 4K digital print) makes such beguiling viewing largely because of Hoffman’s performance as Benjamin, which combines humour, boredom and panic in equal measure.

*****Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 21/06/2017

A chance to see an American classic on the big screen and a welcome alternative to a summer of blockbusters.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 23/06/2017

Attitudes have changed since Anne Bancroft’s predatory seduction of hapless Dustin Hoffman, but this rereleased classic remains a hugely pleasurable experience.
