Two Line Reviews - #137

Movie: The Graduate (1967)

Plot: A 20-turning-21 prodigy-to-be's attention towards his pursuit of graduation is terribly distracted by a seductive alcoholic who happens to be his father's partner's wife. He becomes obsessed with his misdemeanours & when the daughter of the same partner is introduced , he finds true love, accepts his highly disgusting act & does he win her love and vote?

  • A delicate,infact, scandulous subject is dealt with in a very decent & interesting way. Appreciations for that.
  • Dustin Hoffman carries this one on his shoulder & does exceedingly well - As the naive wrongdoer & as the relentless lover-seeker!
  • Other huge huge pluses are Simon & Garfunkel's soundtracks Sound of Silence and Scarborough Fair. Brilliant songs these.
The seriousness with which the film moves makes the fun-filled climax moment a dampener.

My Rating: 9.2/10
