Synopsis

Dustin Hoffman delivers one of his best-known performances as Michael Dorsey, an actor whose "difficult" reputation has led to him being blacklisted across town. In order to find work he hits on the scheme of posing as a woman, "Dorothy Michaels", to land a role in a soap opera. To his surprise he becomes a massive hit - but having to carry on with the ruse creates all sorts of problems, not least falling for his female co-star who thinks he's another woman. Hoffman has a ball as the sassy Dorothy in this sparkling comedy, which mixes camp laughs with witty dialogue and a smattering of social comment.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
