    “The Graduate” in any pedestal neither.
    but cultural significance is undeniable.

    Anyway, Ben made a mistake.
    But that mistake shouldn’t cost him any more than embarrassment.

    Benjamin committed the adultery.
    In Japanese law, Mr. Robinson can sue him.
    Since Ben doesn’t have much money, he may successfully sue Ben’s father also.
    Those story spread, nobody would hire Ben after that.
    This law is still exercised by many by the way.

    Then it would stupid Elaine to stay with him,
    Because he should have known better.

    But “The Graduate” was happened in States, right?

    I thought Ben’s character was weak in the book and rather pathetic also. But what I love about the story was the different possibility.  To me, the meaning of graduate was, they can live life without the burden of the family. It’s all up to them for the future outcome.

    •  At least it had a) great music and b) (0+ / 0-)

      great performances. I think more highly of the movie than most here, I guess.

      What stronger breast-plate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he arm'd, that hath his quarrel just; And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel, Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted. Henry VI Part II Act 3 Scene 2
