They get dated and lose their original focus and power. It comes out of a specific time in the late s when parents stood for stodgy middle-class values, and "the kids'' were joyous rebels at the cutting edge of the sexual and political revolutions.
The Graduation () - IMDb
Benjamin Braddock Dustin Hoffman , the clueless hero of "The Graduate,'' was swept in on that wave of feeling, even though it is clear today that he was utterly unaware of his generation and existed outside time and space he seems most at home at the bottom of a swimming pool. It is a movie about a tiresome bore and his well-meaning parents. The only character in the movie who is alive--who can see through situations, understand motives, and dare to seek her own happiness--is Mrs.
Robinson Anne Bancroft. Seen today, "The Graduate'' is a movie about a young man of limited interest, who gets a chance to sleep with the ranking babe in his neighborhood, and throws it away in order to marry her dorky daughter.
Consider, for a moment, the character of Elaine Katharine Ross , Mrs. Robinson's daughter. She has no dialogue of any depth. She has an alarming fetish for false eyelashes.
She agrees to marry a tall, blond jock Brian Avery mostly because her parents will be furious with her if she doesn't. She is so witless that she misunderstands everything Benjamin says to her.

When she discovers Benjamin has slept with her mother, she is horrified, but before they have ever had a substantial conversation about the subject, she has forgiven him--apparently because Mrs. Robinson is so hateful that it couldn't have been Benjamin's fault. She then escapes from the altar at her own wedding to flee with Benjamin on a bus, where they look at each other nervously, perhaps because they are still to have a meaningful conversation. What was I thinking of? What did the scene celebrate? Occasionally I will meet an almost-adult son of friends, and notice that he behaves like a mute savage in company, responding to conversation with grunts and inarticulate syllables.
This behavior is usually accompanied by uncoordinated lurches, as if he is behind the wheel of a body too big for him to drive. All My Movies. Japanese Movies. Japanese Cinema. Use the HTML below.
