Friday Night Flix presents Tootsie (1982)
January 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pmFREE
“Comedies to Beat Cabin Fever” is the theme for January at the Belfast Free Library’s “Friday Night Flix” film series. The month features four critically acclaimed comedies dating back as far as the 1970s. All the movies are free and take place at 7pm in the Abbott Room.
Leading off on Jan. 8th is Tootsie (1982). How far will an actor go to restart his career? Michael Dorsey, superbly played by Dustin Hoffman, is a talented actor. But he’s also volatile and extremely difficult to work with. Consequently no one will hire him. He needs a “makeover.” Solution? Dress up as a woman and audition for a female role on a trashy soap opera. He gets the role – and a lot more than he bargained for. This comic, yet touching, love story also stars Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Geena Davis and Bill Murray. Nominated for 10 Oscars, including Best Picture.
