Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
This week I’ll talk about films featuring “Mrs. Robinsons”! As the only movie, I’ve ever watched on that topic is The Graduate (with the original Mrs. Robinson), all films mentioned are on my to-watch-list.
#1 The Piano Teacher
Based on an Austrian novel, director Michael Haneke did a French-language adaptation of The Piano Teacher. It features an interesting take on sexuality along with a definite taste of Mrs. Robinson.
#2 The Reader
This German-American co-production deals with a heavy topic. Michael Berg finds out the elder woman who he had an affair with as a teenager is now facing trial. She’s accused of war crimes after being a guard at a Nazi-concentration camp.
#3 Notes on a Scandal
The list of stars in this film is sheer endless. Cate Blanchett is the Mrs. Robinson in this one and gets confronted about it by Judi Dench.
What’s your favorite film featuring a Mrs. Robinson? Let me know in the comments!
