GFT / Fri 1 Mar (10.30)

The first X-rated film to win the Best Picture Oscar, Midnight Cowboy is a gritty but tender-hearted ode to the power of friendship and the lure of the American Dream. British director John Schlesinger brings an outsider’s perspective to the tawdry streets of New York, where fresh-faced Texan Joe Buck (Jon Voight) arrives, determined to become the new stud in town. His plan to woo the wealthy ladies of Manhattan is as naive as it is ridiculous but along the way he finds an unlikely ally in ‘Ratso’ Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), a seedy, small time con man who dreams of escaping to Florida.
