Movie You're Watching Tonight

Tools    





I'm planning on watching Tenet tonight - I've heard mixed things about it but like Nolan so will give it a go.



⬆️ Oof, love how it’s suggested it was the fault of the 13 women.

It's been a while since I posted here, good to be back.


I just rewatched The Graduate for the 5th or 6th time and one of the aspect of the film that is always left unanswered for me is the strong motivation Mrs Robinson has to avoid Benjamin and Elaine to be together.


Why does she hate the idea so much?


I have an hypothesis, here it is: Mrs Robinson hates her life. She tells Benjamin at the beggining of the film that she is an alcoolic, we gradually learn that she had to stop studying art because she got pregnant of Elaine and that she doesn't love her husband. So the thing she has with Benjamin, even though it's purely sexual is something that belongs to her, something that she doesn't have to sacrifice for her husband or Elaine. So when the idea of Ben and Elaine dating came about, it was like her daughter took away from her again what she valued. I have a lot of sympathy for MRs Robinson, I almost hope there's a second version of The Graduate where Ben and Mrs Robinson end up together.


What do you think?

Iíve seen this movie probably 10 times at least. Still love it.

My take was that Mrs Robinson wanted someone better for her daughter than Ben. The guy she was actually engaged to in fact. Any mother would feel the same way, I think.

At the beggining of the film, Mrs Robinson doesn't want Ben to date Elaine and Elaine didn't know the guy she was supposed to marry.


And why would Ben be not good enough? He's good looking, intelligent. What does he lack?
