Sydney Pollack's Tootsie - Ultra Collector Box Blu-ray + DVD + Book 200 pages
Sydney Pollack's cult film served by Dustin Hoffman's unforgettable performance
In New York, Michael Dorsey scours the castings to finally land a role. But this uncompromising actor, known for his bad temper, only has refusals. One day, while accompanying his friend Sandy to an audition for the famous soap General Hospital, he decides to change his identity and returns to the studio in the guise of actress Dorothy Michaels. Thanks to her outspokenness and boundless energy, she landed the role and soon became the star of the series...
After trying out drama, westerns or spy movies, the eclectic Sydney Pollack makes a brilliant foray into the field of comedy with Tootsie . In this portrait of a woman that is alternately funny and moving, the filmmaker finds the right tone to address the notions of sexual identity and prejudice, while delivering a delightful satire on the world of entertainment. Alongside the talented Jessica Lange, Dustin Hoffman plays the role of his life here!
