If “The Graduate” were released today, it might not be in the form of a film.  The pervasive angst on display in this classic might instead be catalogued as a series of tweets by a character I am going to christen @benjaminb46, and which I will imagine, briefly, for you now.

No one has any idea how good it feels to break up a wedding.  Try it. You’ll never be the same.

Now what?




Roger Ebert called The Graduate "the funniest American comedy of the year."  Its reputation has grown considerably since then and this film is now a classic by any measure.  The soundtrack is comprised of some of the best songs of the century.  The actors are legendary.  The story is timeless, yet the film is specific to its era.

Whether you've seen it one hundred times or you're completely new to The Graduate, there's no better way to experience it than on the big screen, in a restored print with surround sound, at the Martha's Vineyard Film Center.

Won the Oscar for Best Director. Nominated for Oscars in the Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress, Cinematography, and Adapted Screenplay categories.
