There are some movies that say so much by saying so little. THE GRADUATE is one of those films. One could say that it's about a boy who falls in love with a woman and then her daughter, but that seems like such a shallow interpretation of a movie that epitomizes everything that was going on with 1960s America.

With the rallying call of, "Plastics, my boy, plastics," the mad men of the day are marketing a new future to the youth of America.  Commerce has ceased to be about quality goods and morphed into financial economics. The film highlights the generation gap between Hoffman's Benjamin Braddock, a recent graduate with no set direction in life and, well, all adults.  In a time when the youthful baby boomer generation begins to protest the consumer-driven new age, Benjamin is lost and confused, the embodiment of post-grads no matter the decade. 

Let us seduce you with this beautiful digital restoration of the movie that captured the mood, and, thanks to a soundtrack by Simon & Garfunkel, the vibrant sounds of the '60s.
