DUSTIN HOFFMAN RETROSPECTIVE: TOOTSIE

SYDNEY POLLACK

Book Tickets

In Tootsie, Hoffman plays Michael Dorsey, an actor struggling more because of his difficult reputation than lack of talent. Desperate for work, he poses as ‘Dorothy Michaels’ in an audition for a daytime soap opera. Having won the part, he must maintain the façade. The feisty ‘Dorothy’ becomes a sensation, but matters are made more complicated when he falls in love with co-star Julie (Jessica Lange) while also fending off the unwanted attentions of her father and a lecherous co-star. The film remains an absolute pleasure, the perfect balance of humour and heart, featuring a wonderful comic turn from Hoffman.
