With his breakthrough role in The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman became an instant success, proving that leading men didn’t have to fit the mould.

The Graduate remains a compelling film worthy of rediscovery, and its position in Hoffman’s career is equally notable. Instead of accepting similar roles, his next performance as Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy confirmed him as a dynamic and versatile actor who refused to be pigeonholed.

During this period he worked with some of the greatest English-language directors of the time, hence why most of his films are classics in their own right.

Season highlights: The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy, All the President’s Men, Papillon and Lenny. More to be announced in the second stage of the season for July.
