Mrs. Robinson's Neighborhood

We watched The Graduate last night, which I don't think I'd ever seen in it's entirety before. I liked it--all that what-to-do-with-my-life-especially-now-that-I've-slept-with-someone's-mother angst ...until it dawned on me that I am roughly the same age as Mrs. Robinson. Yikes!!!

I taught this film when I taught a film studies elective. It's really cool when you see it several times in a row and can analyze its parts. The water symbolism especially.

Wow. I could have done without a reminder of my age as compared to Mrs. Robinson's age.

At leaset I'm not in the least bit attracted to any of the boys in the neighborhood or my son's friends. Whew!

But it is one of my all time favorite films.

You know, Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman were actually only six years apart in age, or something.

I love that movie. Hey, give me a shout when you're ready to trade fiction. I've got a little workshop brewin'.

I just hopped over from part 2 of this topic, and now I will have to find some time to re-watch this movie. I know I have seen it, but I'm thinking 20 years, at least...

And nice that we are her age. Yikes.
