Film Friday: The Graduate
Grab your robe and join us as we celebrate the month of graduations with films that explore the unchartered territory after you earn that fancy parchment.
This week’s film is The Graduate, which tells the story of Benjamin Braddock, a recent university graduate who returns home and is seduced by a family friend, Mrs. Robinson. Yes, this is the film that introduced the line, “Mrs. Robinson, you are trying to seduce me,” into mainstream. Against Mrs. Robinson’s wishes, Ben falls in love with Elaine and goes to great lengths to be with her.
