Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight star in John Schlesinger's Academy Award-winning drama based on the novel by James Leo Herlihy.
Texan dishwasher Joe Buck (Voight) dreams of making it big in New York.
Convinced that he can make his fortune providing sexual favours for wealthy women, he makes the move to the Big Apple.
Unfortunately, the first woman he beds down with, Cass (Sylvia Miles), doesn't have any money to speak of, and borrows some of his.
At this point, sleazy street hustler Enrico 'Ratso' Rizzo (Hoffman) enters the frame, offering to become Joe's manager.
The only engagement he can arrange is with a gay Christian, but Joe and Ratso soon become close friends, fantasising to each other about the millions they are going to make.
The film won three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, while both Hoffman and Voight were nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role.
