He's Tootsie... She's Dustin Hoffman. DUSTIN HOFFMAN triumphs in TOOTSIE, one of his funniest performances ever. Michael Dorsey is a long-struggling unemployed actor, until he passes himself off as Dorothy Michaels and successfully auditions for a daytime TV show. The show is a nationwide hit, Dorothy becomes a star and Dorsey’s life becomes a soap opera. Then he falls for his leading lady (JESSICA LANGE). Nominated for 10 Academy Awards (1983), including Best Picture and featuring a stellar support cast – CHARLES DURNING, BILL MURRAY, TERI GARR, GEENA DAVIS and director SYDNEY POLLACK – TOOTSIE is a standout comedy classic.
