Hoy ví El Graduado.

Después busqué el significado de la canción Mrs. Robinson y en el sitio www.songmeanings.net me encontré con una definición bastante pero bastante copada sobre la parte sociológica del asunto:

This song is about the state of the nation in the late 60's. Ms. Robinson is an archetype of the generation that could no longer uphold the "perfectness" of the '50s no matter how good their intentions. (hence why Jesus loves you, there were lots of wrongs committed with the best of intentions) The entire older generation of the 60's was in a sort of institution, desperately trying to maintain an unmaintainable false image. Hide it from the kids, they'll rip off the covers and expose everything. Government is not helping, anyway you lose. Also, an excellent note from the movie: Notice how after they "succeeded" in toppling the establishment's expectations they sat in the back of the bus looking like they had no clue about what to do next? That was 60's youth, and that conflict with one side wrong and the other side confused and directionless is what this song is about.

Ain't that cooooool????? Los sesenta... me encanta donde dice que no tienen la más pálida idea de qué van a hacer después. Pero las caras de felicidad son impagables!!! Creo que por eso me gustó tanto la película.

Yep, I totally agree with that reasoning about the song. Nonetheless, it happens all the time. You'll see that in a few years. Actually, you can see it right now watching around. There's nothing new under the sun!

Sure, but I guess society was still more unbearable then (regarding perfectness") than it is now.... my parents are a good example hahaha
