Live Blog: The Graduate

Mike Nichols’ classic film ‘The Graduate’ was on ITV3 yesterday, and after our last post mentioning it, we thought you guys would be watching it. The film is regarded as one of the first on screen depictions of QLCs and shows the main character Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) struggling to understand what he should do with himself after graduating university.

So rather than considering doing a post-graduate degree or learning a new skill, Ben decides the best thing to do in a time of austerity and a struggling job market is to sleep with Mrs. Robinson. Queue drama.

“Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me.”








Here is what some of our friends on Twitter were saying about The Graduate. As you can see, it was pretty popular and one of the lovely tweeters points out that Mrs. Robinson is quite the foxy lady.

So as you can see, we weren’t the only ones slightly confused by how The Graduate can help guide you through your QLC as it seems that the only life tips we can take away is that sleeping with older women doesn’t make you happier or any more employable. However, we thoroughly enjoyed watching it and we’d recommend you do the same.
