Synopsis

In the mid-1960s, Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman), a confused college graduate, is pulled in myriad directions by his wealthy family, friends, and associates just days after receiving his degree. Seduced by alcoholic and a neurotic Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), an older friend of the family and the wife of his father's law partner, Ben carries on an affair with the married woman even as he falls for her daughter, Elaine (Katharine Ross). However, Ben and Elaine's attempts at romance are threatened by the spiteful rage of Mrs. Robinson, who proceeds to hastily arrange Elaine's marriage to someone else, leading up to one of the most memorable endings in cinema history.
