The Graduate

The Graduate ★★★★★

One of my all-time favorite movies, for the writing, the directing, the acting, and the soundtrack. My parents had the soundtrack when I was growing up, and we called it "the foot album" (because of Mrs. Robinson's foot on the cover), but it wasn't until high school that I started watching the movie over and over again. When it showed recently as part of a Mike Nichols retrospective, I took my sons to see it, and it was the first time that I'd been to see it in a theater myself. I love that it came out the year I was born.
