“It’s completely baked…”
Mike Nichols‘ beloved classic, The Graduate, is 50 this year, and Studiocanal are celebrating this anniversary with a cinema release of a pristine new 4K restoration.
The Graduate earned Nichols the best director statue at the 1967 Academy Awards alongside a slew of other nominations, including best picture, actor (Dustin Hoffman), actress (Anne Bancroft), and supporting actress (Katharine Ross).
The image in this HD update is crisp and colours are vibrant while retaining the grain of the original 35mm negative. But it’s the audio – including Simon and Garfunkel’s classic score – where the extra attention is apparent.
The Graduate is re-released in selected cinemas from 23rd June. This will be followed by a brand new Special Edition DVD, Blu-Ray and EST release on 24th July.
