The Graduate (15)

Director Mike Nichols. 1967 Comedy/Drama


One of the most beloved of all American films, The Graduate is 50 this year, and Studiocanal are celebrating this anniversary with a cinema release of a pristine new 4K restoration, including a 2 week run at the BFI Southbank from 2. This will be followed by a brand new Special Edition DVD. A sensation on its original release in 1967, The Graduate was a one-of-a-kind cinematic portrait of America which captured the mood of disaffected youth seething beneath the laid-back exterior of 1960s California. It earned Mike Nichols a Best Director Oscar, introduced the music of Simon & Garfunkel to a wider audience and featured one of the most famous seductions in movie history and a truly iconic final scene. The Graduate also introduced the world to a young actor named Dustin Hoffman, perfectly cast as the jaw-droppingly naïve Benjamin.

Starring Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross, William Daniels, Murray Hamilton


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A great classic film.

The picture quality of the remastered film was excellent and the audience were humming along to the Simon & Garfunkel sound track!

Good to see such an iconic film again after its first showing 50 years ago.
