This is a movie that I think would live up to the hype that surrounded it, but it did. The Graduate for is a movie that sneaks up on you about how good it is. This is the second movie directed by Mike Nichols, this is also the second motion picture that he directed. This story you all know, so I do not have to tell you about it. If you are just looking for something to watch that is good with a great story watch this. Also if you look online you will see that there are a ton of studies done about the movie.
