Bound for Canaan: The Underground Railroad and the War for the Soul of America (Audiobook) By Fergus M. Bordewich
English | 2005 | ISBN: 0060760648 | MP3 | 819 MB

An important book of epic scope on America's first racially integrated, religiously inspired movement for change.
The true story of the Underground Railroad is much more morally complex and politically divisive than even the myths suggest. Against a backdrop of the country's westward expansion arose a clash of values that evolved into a fierce fight for nothing less than the country's soul. Beginning six decades before the Civil War, freedom-seeking blacks and courageous whites worked together to save tens of thousands of lives, often at the risk of great physical danger to themselves. Not since the American Revolution had the country engaged in an act of such vast and profound civil disobedience that not only challenged prevailing mores but also subverted federal law.

Benjamin Braddock, un étudiant fraîchement diplômé, ne sait pas quoi faire de son avenir. Lors d'une soirée mondaine chez ses parents où il vagabonde, il fait la connaissance de Mrs Robinson, l'épouse du patron de son père. La femme, d'âge mûr, entreprend de séduire le garçon et y parvient très rapidement. Benjamin découvre les joies du sexe et profite de la situation du haut de ses 21 ans. Mais les choses se compliquent lorsque Monsieur Robinson demande à Benjamin de sortir avec Elaine, sa fille. Le jeune homme accepte et en tombe amoureux, s'attirant par la même occasion les foudres de Mrs Robinson. Cette dernière, folle de jalousie, décide d'empêcher leur union en proposant sa fille en mariage à un autre homme.

The Graduate (1967) is one of the key, ground-breaking films of the late 1960s, and helped to set in motion a new era of film-making. The influential film is a biting satire/comedy about a recent nebbish, East Coast college graduate who finds himself alienated and adrift in the shifting, social and sexual mores of the 1960s, and questioning the values of society (with its keyword "plastics"). The themes of the film also mirrored the changes occurring in Hollywood, as a new vanguard of younger directors were coming to the forefront. Avant-garde director Mike Nichols, following his debut success of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) with this second film, instantly became a major new talent in American film after winning an Academy Award for his directorship.

Won Oscar. Another 19 wins & 13 nominations
