Berkreviews.com Movie Club – The Graduate (1967)
The month of July is all coming of age stories. Corey (@coreyrstarr)has never seen The Graduate before so it was an obvious first choice. Jonathan (@berkreviews) watched it during his 366 challenge (read the review here) but was excited to see the film a second time. It was directed by Mike Nichols and stars Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, and Katharine Ross. If you didn’t catch this one at the time of recording it was available to stream on Prime Instant Video.
Next week – Y Tu Mamá También (2001)
Jonathan selected Y Tu Mamá También (2001) for the next film. It’s one that came highly recommended to him and is on a few other film lists for coming of age movies. The film is directed by Alfonso Cuarón and stars Maribel Verdú, Gael García Bernal, Daniel Giménez Cacho, and Diego Luna. Corey hasn’t seen this one either so it’s a first for each.
Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
