- What's at Stake in The Graduate   Every time somebody rents a video or watches a movie on television there is always that little blurb right before they begin viewing about the picture being formatted for the screen. Usually, it is ignored or merely taken as a cue that the film is about to start. That little forewarning actually holds a lot of significance, for when one views a movie in its original, wide screen version, a whole new world opens up. When a movie is altered from its initial state, and cropped in the editing room for home viewing, an overwhelming amount of the film is unsuspectingly missed....   [tags: Movie Film comparison compare contrast]

I did not really know what she meant, but I knew something about what she said sounded very wrong.

Unaware of his promising life he finds himself troubled and confused as to what he wants. The film brought the novel to life with authentic characters with sympathy and edge, the novel The Graduate was the foundation of one the most successful and iconic films in history....   [tags: Broadway Hit, Plot Summary]

Film Analysis of The Graduate Directed by Mike Nichols

- "Mrs. Robinson, you are trying to seduce me," says Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman). The Graduate, directed by Mike Nichols in 1967 is an influential satire/comedy film about a recent East Coast college graduated who finds himself alienated and aimless in the changing, social and sexual general public of the 1960s, and questioning the values of society. The theme of the film is of an innocent and confused youth who is exploited, mis-directed, seduced (literally and figuratively) and betrayed by a corrupt, self-indulgent, and discredited older generation (that finds stability in “plastics”) that I found to be quite clear and understanding, while also capturing the real spirit of the times...   [tags: film analysis, movie analysis]

Viewer Response - The Graduate

- In The Graduate, the director, Mike Nichols’, emphasizes the mysterious tone of the film with his overuse of lighting, camera angles, and shadows. The uncertainty Benjamin Braddock feels can be seen right from the start as he stands on the moving sidewalk at the airport. He is positioned at the right hand side of the screen moving forward. You can see a large area to the left where the credits appear.

History Of New Graduate Nurses And The Retention Of Nurses

- The role the preceptor plays in the development of new graduate nurses’ clinical practice is invaluable (Richards & Bowles, 2012). There is a strong correlation between a well-planned orientation of new graduate nurses and the retention of nurses. Many experienced nurses are not well prepared to act as preceptors in the increasingly complex nature of the hospital environment (Horton, DePaoli, Hertach, & Bower, 2012). Providing preceptors with the formal education to acquire the skills needed to precept new nurses helps them perform more effectively (Burns & Northcut, 2009) and provides greater personal satisfaction from precepting (Richards & Bowles, 2012)....   [tags: Education, Nursing, Learning styles, Nurse]
