Extra Credit: Tootsie

November 26 at 6pm

Michael Dorsey is a talented actor, but his demanding nature and stubborn temperament have antagonized every producer in New York. Now his agent insists no one will hire him. But Michael needs money — eight thousand dollars to be exact — and to earn it, he's willing to play the role of a lifetime. Dustin Hoffman stars with Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Bill Murray and Geena Davis in director Sydney Pollack's heart-filled classic that heralded a new era of Hollywood wig-flipping and set a new standard for unpredictable laugh-out-loud comedy.

A Q&A discussion will follow the film featuring MU’s Dr. Robert Russell, Dr. Cheryl Black, and Dr. Andrea Heiss.
