Lots of fun to watch, the story was great and all of the characters are as well. The interactions between the characters in the first half are superb and really took the movie as a whole to the next level. There are loads of classic moments to be seen here, and rightfully so. My only real complaint is with the daughter's character, she's never fully fleshed out and everything about her situation is unbelievable because of this, it would have been near perfect had they given her more attention
I think this was most likely more bold and interesting at the time of its release, but it is a good film. Hoffman gives a good performance at least. One which I think even youth today can understand. Wasn't amazed, but I'd watch it again.
Never dull for a moment, filled with wonderfully funny moments, compelling plot developments, the lovely music of Simon & Garfunkel, terrific performances, and keen insight into the lives of people who are lost to themselves. Compulsively watchable from start to finish. Bold choices in the editing and music.
Some may find it a little slow, and The Graduate may not have defined any genre, but it was the creation of Mrs. Robinson, a nearly evilly lustful character that now lives in infamy. Hoffman's performance, along with almost every other actors', is extremely real and believable. Really good!
