The Graduate was Hoffman's Hollywood breakthrough and remains perhaps his most iconic role. He stars as titular graduate Ben Braddock, who becomes embroiled in a love affair with Anne Bancroft's older Mrs Robinson. The timeless film features the young Hoffman uttering the immortal line: "Mrs Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?", and earned him his first Academy Award nomination.
