Nothing says summer in New York quite like seeing that big screen set-up in Bryant Park for HBO's outdoor film series. Now in its 21st year, the festival kicks off with one of the funniest films of all-time, Tootsie. Starring Dustin Hoffman as an unemployable actor who resorts to dressing as a woman to land a role in a soap, the Sydney Pollack-directed 1983 classic received 10 academy-award nominations. Also along for ride are Jessica Lange, Bill Murray and Terri Garr, who all turn brilliant supporting performances.
