Tootsie_Screening_Fb

Help us break in our new flat screen TV at Common Root with a screening of “Tootsie” on Friday, August 9th at 7 PM.

Dustin Hoffman stars in this 1982 film about an unemployed actor disguising himself as a woman to score a role in a soap opera, when he finds he’s earned a bad reputation as a difficult-to-work-with male actor.

We’ll also be showing this 3-minute interview with Dustin Hoffman, where he shares his feelings on playing a woman on screen, and how it changed his perspective on the value of women’s personalities, and his feelings on being brainwashed by our culture’s beauty standards.
