One of the most beloved American films of all time, THE GRADUATE is 50 this year, and STUDIOCANAL are very proud to be celebrating this anniversary with a cinema release of a pristine new 4K restoration including a 2 week run at the BFI Southbank from 23rd June as part of their Dustin Hoffman season. This will be followed by a brand new Special Edition DVD, Blu-Ray and EST release on 24th July.
A complete sensation on its original release in 1967, THE GRADUATE was a one-of-a-kind cinematic portrait of America which captured the mood of disaffected youth seething beneath the laid-back exterior of 1960s California. It earned Mike Nichols a Best Director Oscar, introduced the music of Simon & Garfunkel to a wider audience and featured one of the most famous seductions in movie history and a truly iconic final scene. THE GRADUATE also introduced the world to a young actor named Dustin Hoffman, perfectly cast as the jaw-droppingly naïve Benjamin.
