Benjamin has graduated from college, Benjamin is confused, Benjamin doesn’t know what to do with his future. The spectacular debut of Dustin Hoffman, bewildered and nervous as the small, middle-class anti-hero who hates his parents’ ostentatious life, is seduced by Mrs Robinson and falls in love with her daughter. Mike Nichols’s direction is all ellipses, leaps and attractions. A “narrative” soundtrack by Simon & Garfunkel, with the timeless Sound of Silence and Mrs Robinson.
