The Graduate

<p>where did dustin hoffman's character go to college in the graduate?</p>

<p>princeton university.</p>

<p>How do you know? I've watched that movie a few times, and I never remember them actually mentioning where he went</p>

<p>what is the graduate about?</p>

<p>Tired of being the golden boy for his parents friends, college track star Benjamin Braddock embarks upon an affair with the wife of his father's boss. Benjamin leads a frustrated life and often sees adults in a surreal way, so he hopes to relax and sow his wild oats as suggested by his mistresses husband, but is dismayed to find himself just another tool to ease middle-aged insecurity.</p>

<p>I haven't seen it, review from imdb.</p>

<p>i haven't seen that movie in some time but it is my recollection that somewhere in the movie there is a mention or a reference indicating ben attended princeton. i could be wrong.</p>

<p>Benjamin Braddock "graduated from a prestigious East Coast university"...</p>

<p>It never says in the movie where. One can assume that it was an Ivy though.</p>

<p>Just wanted to say, that's a great movie.</p>

<p>The author went to Williams.</p>

<p>It was Berkeley.</p>

<p>No, Berkeley is where Elaine Robinson was going to college.</p>

<p>Berkeley is on the WEST coast. but nice try</p>

<p>I don’t think they said in the movie which college it was, only that it was prestigious and on the east coast. However, the pilot in the opening scene says “we expect to make our 4 hour and 18 minute flight on time” when they’re flying into Los Angeles. It takes at least 5 hours to fly from los angeles to the north east, so that rules out most of the ivys. However a flight to Atlanta from LA takes a little over four hours. Emory maybe?</p>

<p>Maybe he caught a connecting flight through O’Hare.</p>

<p>The movie was filmed at Cal-Berkeley, and the house that they used was a fraternity.</p>

<p>Good movie. Of course, I’m a parent. The best line, and one that’s been quoted a lot, is in the beginning of the movie. Benjamin’s parents are having a party in honor of his graduation. One of their friends, having had a bit too much to drink, says loudly to Benjamin, “PLASTICS, Benjamin. That’s where the money is. Go into PLASTICS.” </p>

<p>We always used that line to joke to our kids what they should do.</p>

<p>Simon and Garfunkel wrote “Mrs. Robinson” for this movie.</p>

<p>The screenwriter of The Graduate, Buck Henry, is a Dartmouth grad and very funny actor as well.</p>

<p>The author of the book The Graduate on which the movie was based is Charles Webb, and he graduated from Williams.</p>
