If there’s a trend in movies and in television that’s been increasing and will continue to increase the more the Lgbtq community is accepted into the mainstream, it’s actors playing a variety of genders, races, ethnicities, you name it. The first truly remarkable role of a man playing a woman came in 1982’s Tootsie which starred Dustin Hoffman.

To mark the BFI’s celebration of Dustin Hoffman’s 80th birthday this year we’ve put together a fantastic goody bag that any cinephile will love! As Dustin Hoffman, the versatile and ‘unlikely’ leading man, turns 80, we bring his best work back to the big screen. Highlights range from The Graduate to Tootsie, from Midnight Cowboy to Kramer v. Kramer. Contents include: A pair of tickets to part one and two of the BFI’s Dustin Hoffman season, a round of Dustin Hoffman themed cocktails for you and a friend courtesy of our friends at Honest Folk and a copy of The Graduate by Charles Webb. Told with wry, deadpan humour, this brilliant anti-establishment fable by Charles Webb was the basis for Mike Nichols’ acclaimed film starring Dustin Hoffman, and is a classic of the 1960s’ counterculture.
Taking place from 1 June – 28 July, BFI Southbank’s two month »

It’s been half a century since legendary filmmaker Mike Nichols’ groundbreaking “The Graduate,” and to celebrate the 50-year anniversary, Rialto Pictures and Studiocanal are bringing a 4K restoration of the film back to theaters.
The breakout movie for Dustin Hoffman, whose college track star Benjamin Braddock finds himself seduced by his older, married family friend Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), “The Graduate” was the biggest box office surprise hit of the 1960s, nominated for seven Oscars. Nichols won the Academy Award for directing, in just his second feature film.
The restoration will have its world premiere on April 8 at the Tcl Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, part of this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, and will also includes exclusive commentary from Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz, who will share his insights into the classic film. »
