Arranged: Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. A young Orthodox woman, Rochel Meshenberg, is about to begin her first year as a special education teacher at the local public school. She is also about to begin the process of finding a husband via the time-tested method of using a "shadchen," or matchmaker. As the school year gets underway, Rochel meets Nasira Khaldi, a Muslim woman of Syrian descent. Nasira is also a first-year teacher. The two young women - Rochel in long skirt and conservative blouse, Nasira in headscarf - stand out in this public school context. The principal is forever reminding them that although they are some of her smartest, most gifted teachers, they are also stunted by their outmoded customs, religions, and by their patriarchal worldviews. As the school year progresses, Rochel and Nasira realize they share much in common, not least of which is that they are both going through what the outside world calls "arranged marriages." They develop a friendship that transcends their insular Brooklyn communities and the religions that seem so at odds and, as their friendship deepens, they are exposed to each other's worlds

Michael Dorsey ist ein typischer New Yorker Schauspieler: jung, aggressiv, ehrgeizig, talentiert. Und eben wie viele seiner Kollegen - nicht vermittelbar. Michael hat ganz eigene Vorstellungen von seinen Rollen und legt sich daher ständig mit den Regisseuren an. Als er eine Freundin zu einem Vorsprechtermin für eine geplante Seifenoper gegleitet, deren Hauptfigur eine leitende Krankenschwester in mittleren Jahren ist, hat er eine Idee: Er verkleidet sich als Frau, stellt sich als Dorothy Michaels vor und wird prompt engagiert. Doch damit fangen seine Probleme erst richtig an. Die Serie wird dank "Dorothy" zum Publikumsrenner, und die lieberale, resolute "Frau" avanciert zur Sprecherin einer Generation. Zu allem Überfluß heftet sich ein hartnäckiger Verehrer an "Dorothys" Fersen; dann verliebt sich Michael auch noch in seine Partnerin Julie, die immer so nett zu ihrer vermeintlichen Kollegin ist. Im Spiel der wechselnden Identitäten gerät Michael ganz schön durcheinander ... Dustin Hoffman spielt seine Doppelrolle mit Bravour. Die facettenreiche Darstellung beider Charaktere läßt die gelungene Komödie nicht in platte "Charleys Tante"--Klischees abdriften. Überzeugend macht Hoffman die Konflikte zwischen den Geschlechterrollen deutlich und verleiht Sydney Pollacks Travestie-Lustspiel eine große Portion Charme.
