An out-of-work actor (Dustin Hoffman) disguises himself as a woman and lands a role on a popular soap opera. But when the character becomes a national celebrity, he’s trapped by the role he has created for himself. Tootsie was nominated for 10 Oscars and won for Jessica Lange’s supporting performance.
