IMDb: A disillusioned college graduate finds himself torn between his older lover and her daughter.
Will be watching classics alongside Japanese animation movies for the rest of January. I don’t know why I let time pass by before I watched this classic gem. But I guess there’s good reason to it. It’s so easy to connect with the mentally adrift, lost and confused Benjamin Braddock now that I’m out of college myself. Dustin Hoffman’s portrayal of him was funny as hell. Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson was phenomenal, with a face and voice that’s distinctly unforgettable. Also worth-noting were the impressive camera-work, hilarious but mordant script and the heavy use of the sonically-endearing Simon and Garfunkel music.by
