Directed by Mike Nichols (USA, 1967, 106 min.).

Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman, in his screen acting debut) moves into his parents’ Pasadena home after earning his bachelor’s degree at Williams College. As the lazy summer days march by, he struggles to avoid the one question everyone keeps asking: What do you want to do with your life? An unexpected diversion arrives in the form of Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), a bored housewife and family friend who seduces Benjamin one afternoon. But what begins as a fun tryst turns complicated when Benjamin falls for the one woman Mrs. Robinson demanded he stay away from—her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross). Presented in a 4K digital restoration.
