The Graduate

The Graduate ★★★★

Dustin Hoffman at his most nervous, as polite as heck and no match for the vampish Mrs Robinson (the superb Anne Bancroft). They spark off each other wonderfully. Not to mention the parents from hell, the angst-ridden Simon and Garfunkel songs, the arty shots, the mise en scene and the very flavour of the 60s. Katherine Ross as Elaine, the Robinsons' daughter, is good as well. A gem of growth which hasn't dated one bit.
