What romantic movies are really about

Some good points, but it ought to be accurate. In The Graduate, it isn't the case that "he later whisks her away from her wedding." Though he interrupts it, she voluntarily goes with him. It isn't something that he does to her, as this phrasing states. (And the framing makes clear that she is revolted by the anger of her family and fiancee, so "despite having nothing to offer her" isn't accurate either. She thinks he does. You can argue that her character is fk'd up, but I'd say it's part of the point of the movie that they're all fk'd up.

Well said.
