The Graduate, 1967
In this dramedy directed by Mike Nichols, Dustin Hoffman plays Benjamin Braddock, a recent college graduate disillusioned by the people around him and seeking a world different from that of his materialistic family. Like Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye, Benjamin's goal is to avoid the phonies he sees all around him. (With an exception, of course, for Anne Bancroft's sultry Mrs. Robinson.)
