Rain Man is a 1988 film starring actors Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. The movie won numerous awards, including the Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Dustin Hoffman) and Best Picture.

After the death of his father, selfish Charlie Babbitt (Cruise) finds that his father's fortune was left to his autistic savant brother Raymond (Hoffman). Charlie decides that he will take custody of his brother, but first he must take Raymond to California. What follows is a cross-country road trip, character growth, and a realization that money is not the only important thing in life.
