    The Graduate

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    On the surface, “The Graduate” is a romantic comedy about a young man (literally and metaphorically) drowning because of the pressure and expectations put on him by his parents and other grown-ups in his life. He’s an object to them, something they can be proud of. They love him, sure, but they suffocate him.

Also, that script has some fantastic lines. Every character, every scene, every shot is there for a reason, this is just a very, very, very well-made film.
