About The Graduate
Nominated for seven Academy Awards and winner for Best Director, this groundbreaking social satire launched the career of two-time Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman and cemented the reputation of acclaimed director Mike Nichols. Pulsating with the rebellious spirit of the 60s and the landmark score by Simon and Garfunkel, the film starred Hoffman as Benjamin Braddock, Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson, and Katherine Ross as her daughter, Elaine. Directed by Mike Nichols, the film was written by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham based on the novel by Charles Webb.

Webb's The Graduate, published in 1963, was a successful first novel for the young American writer. The novel dramatizes the post-graduate blues of Pasadena native Benjamin Braddock and chronicles his encounters with Mrs. Robinson, the bored but attractive wife of his father's law partner. When Benjamin falls in love with the Robinsons' beautiful daughter Elaine, Mrs. Robinson sabotages their relationship by telling Elaine of her affair with Benjamin. But he is undeterred – for the first time in his life, Benjamin knows what he wants and he relentlessly pursues Elaine as she prepares to marry someone else.
