What's a weekend with Dustin Hoffman worth to you? $180? That's the price tag on the American Film Institute Film Weekend scheduled for November 2, 3 and 4 in Williamsburg, where you get not only Hoffman, but producer Stanley Jaffe, director-screenwriter Robert Benton and an advance screening of their new movie "Kramer vs. Kramer."
Actually it's more of a one-night stand with Hoffman. (What do you expect for $180?) He'll answer audience questions for two hours after a colonial-style dinner Saturday night. There'll also be a brunch, cocktail reception and screenings of some other Hoffman movies -- "All the President's Men," "Little Big Man," "The Graduate" and "Midnight Cowboy." The weekend includes admission passes to the Colonial Williamsburg restored area and two nights' accommodations in Williamsburg.
"Kramer vs. Kramer," based on Avery Corman's 1977 novel, is scheduled to open in Washington at Christmastime. Hoffman plays a father who must raise his young son alone when the boy's mother (Meryl Streep) decides she wants out.
The $180 is the beginning price for AFI members. Non-members' prices start at $205. They go up depending on where you stay. For details and reservations, call Monica Morgan at the AFI: 828-4050.
