“Rain Man” - Movie Review
“Rain Man” was directed by Barry Levinson in 1988. This is an excellent human drama, showing the talents of great actors starring. The main character Dustin Hoffman was rewarded with Best Actor and Best Picture Oscars. He is one of this generation's finest actors.
A movie is about autism. Dustin Hoffman plays an autistic savant who lives in Wallbrook. Tom Cruise plays a businessperson who sells expensive cars for a living (Porsche, Lamborghini, etc). Soon Cruise learns about his father's death, and at the reading of the will, he learns that his father has given the great part of the estate to a brother that he never knew about. As a result, they both go on a cross-country journey from Cinncinnati to Los Angeles and the events are funny, touching, and sad all at once. While they are traveling around the country, Charlie learns about Raymond's extraordinary skills.
This is one of my favorite films of all time, as we watch the relationship between two completely different brothers change from a curiosity into a loving friendship.
This is an excellent movie, which has perhaps one minus. I think it is the fact that director Barry Levinson did not focus more on the realism of being an autistic savant. The director shows us a little bit about autistic people, but he did not go deeply on the subject.
In the end, how could I not recommend that you see this film? It is a classic, it is a great movie, and you will not spare your time when you see it. It will leave a warm and great feeling in you when the film is ended and the end credits roll.
