Graduates Face the Future on Film (SF Chronicle)

The pressing of robes and decorating of caps can mean only one thing: It’s graduation season. 

This life achievement, with all its pomp and circumstance, makes great story fodder for the movies. From Dustin Hoffman floating aimlessly in his parents’ pool in 1967’s “The Graduate,” to 1986’s “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” students on the precipice of “the real world” have always captured our imagination.

They also share some common themes onscreen, like a blowout grad night party and jitters about the future. So, give the graduates in your life a little extra grace and a lot of additional support this season. You can start before diplomas are handed out by watching one of these grad-focused films together.
