The Graduate (1967)

Box Office Gross: $104.64 million

The film which has had the greatest influence on my life. I saw it at a crossroads, when I didn't know what to do, where to turn, what path in life to take. It dealt with cynicism and with finding a self-identity as no other film before or after. People who list it as a "comedy" miss its point.
