it's the season of caps and gowns and commencement speeches

A.O. Scott of the NYTimes reviews Mike Nichols's 1967 film, The Graduate and explains why it's so timely and effective in capturing what it's like to be in your early twenties (use of music, sexuality, etc). the film originally casted robert redford and candace bergen as the young lovers, and doris day as mrs. robinson. it's hard to imagine the movie without anne bancroft, katharine ross, and dustin hoffman.

thanks for the tip, alli.
