Ein unselbstständiger junger Mann aus gutbürgerlichem Hause wird von seinen Eltern aufs College geschickt, wo man ihn auf eine künftige Karriere als Geschäftsmann vorbereiten soll. Er nutzt die Freiheit zu ersten erotischen Abenteuern mit einer älteren Frau, aber erst als er sich in deren Tochter verliebt, überwindet er seine Schüchternheit und Lethargie. Temporeiche Gesellschaftssatire, die gleichermaßen die verkalkte Moral des amerikanischen Establishments und die Weltfremdheit der jungen Generation aufs Korn nimmt, die sich aber deutlich auf die Seite der unangepassten Söhne und Töchter schlägt. Mit musikalischem Elan, schicken Pop-Elementen und spitzem Humor inszeniert. (, 15.2.10)

"At the end of Charles Webb's first novel, The Graduate, Benjamin Braddock rescues his beloved Elaine from a marriage made, not in heaven, but in California. It is now eleven years and 3,000 miles later, and the couple live in Westchester County, a suburb of New York City, with their two young sons whom they are educating at home. A continent stands between them and the boys' surviving grandparent, who in former days answered to Mrs. Robinson. As the story opens, the Braddock household is in turmoil as the Westchester School Board attempts to quash the unconventional educational methods the family is practicing. Desperate situations call for desperate remedies - even a cry for help to the mother-in-law from hell"--Container

Figlio d'un affermato uomo d'affari, neolaureato a pieni voti e proiettato verso una brillante carriera, all'apparenza il giovane protagonista non avrebbe alcun motivo di essere scontento, eppure sembra assente, totalmente estraneo a quel sontuoso e ovattato mondo in cui è chiamato a vivere. Né valgono le sollecitazioni paterne a scuoterlo dal profondo stato di inerzia in cui è caduto. L'unica distrazione dalla nuova torpida esistenza è la relazione segreta con la signora Robinson, moglie del socio di suo padre. Ma nemmeno in questa timida esperienza di trasgressione Benjamin riesce a instaurare un serio contatto umano. Una difficoltà di comunicazione, di apertura verso il mondo tormenta il protagonista, incapace di affrontare la solitudine, finchè l'amore per la bella Elaine, figlia della sua matura amante, ridesta in lui la speranza. Ma la storia scivola nel dramma quando la relazione con la Robinson viene a galla ed Elaine, pur innamorata di Benjamin, decide di sposare un altro uomo. (Mymovies)

This film, based on the Ned Kelly legend, was filmed in and around Benalla by a specialist in low budget quickies with a local football hero, Bob Chitty, as Ned. The shortcomings of the uninspired script and its clumsy realisation were derided by the Benalla audience at its premiere and noted by press reviewers upon its brief Sydney release
