Dustin Hoffman Season at BFI Southbank

“I grew up thinking a movie star had to be like Rock Hudson or Tab Hunter, certainly nobody in any way like me”
Dustin Hoffman

With his breakthrough role in The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman became an instant success, proving that leading men didn’t have to fit the mould. Today, The Graduate remains a compelling film worthy of rediscovery, and its position in Hoffman’s career is equally notable. Instead of accepting similar roles, his next performance as Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy confirmed him as a dynamic and versatile actor who refused to be pigeonholed. During this period he worked with some of the greatest English-language directors of the time, hence why all of the films in our two-part season are classics in their own right. As Hoffman approaches his 80th birthday, we celebrate his career and recognise a true, collaborative acting talent.

BFI Southbank present a selection of some of Dustin Hoffman's best work, including his breakout role in The Graduate as well as other greats such as Midnight Cowboy, Straw Dogs, All the President's Men and of course, Rain Man.
