Dir John Schlesinger
With Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight, Sylvia Miles, Brenda Vaccaro
A BFI release
After a year of uncertainty when he almost decided to leave film behind, Hoffman (against industry advice) took the role of seedy conman ‘Ratso’ Rizzo and delivered a remarkable performance. Voight is equally impressive as naive young Texan Joe Buck, who arrives in New York believing that women will be falling at his feet, but finds himself sharing a squat with his unlikely ally. Join us for a post-screening Q&A with a legendary Hollywood photographer who got up close on the film.
