Exclusive to Dolores Park Movie Night!!!
No top-10 movie list is complete without The Graduate near the top. One of the best movies of our time, Dustin Hoffman turns in a classic performance as Benjamin, a confused college graduate coming to terms with a suburban American Dream sedated by pills, desensitized by liquor, and dulled by television and Tupperware.
"Just one word: Plastics!"
His life becomes complicated when he is embroiled in an affair with the original Urban Cougar Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), the wife of his father's business partner. Naturally, he falls in love with Mrs. Robinson's daughter, Elaine (Katharine Ross), and zainess ensues.
Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me... Aren"t you?
At times hilarious, cynical, ironic and compelling, and featuring a classic Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack, The Graduate is a movie you will not want to miss.
