Overview

Fresh out of college and stuck in a summertime malaise, Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) moves back in with his doting parents while he working out his next step. When he drives the wife of his father's business partner home one night, Mrs Robinson (Anne Bancroft) famously seduces him with her smoky demeanour and leopard-print lingerie. That's until he meets her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross) for the first time since high school and things truly begin to unravel.

Why You Should See This Film

Sun-soaked, tender and set to the music of Simon & Garfunkel, The Graduate is one of director Mike Nichols's very best. Anne Bancroft performs at the top of her game and Dustin Hoffman nails the trope of inexperienced 21-year-old doofus male. It's a near-perfect slice of late-'60s life.

Hot Summer Nights: A Gin & Film Festival

To celebrate the sunnier side of the seasons, join our friends at Four Pillars Gin for Hot Summer Nights: A Gin & Film Festival. Every Wednesday night in February, we're bringing you a radiant program of hot cult favourites across the themes of School’s Out (Reality Bites, The Graduate), Star-Crossed Lovers (Romeo + Juliet, True Romance), Street Heat (Rear Window, Do the Right Thing) and Wild West (Zabriskie Point, Boogie Nights).

And of course, every week gets an ice cold summery Four Pillars cocktail to match. For The Graduate and Reality Bites this week, we’ll be serving Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin in a Gin Spritz.
