"Wonderfully funny and touching. There's magic in it!" 

Peter Travers, People Magazine.

Screen greats Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise star in this brilliant, poignant film about discovery, transformation and the incomparable power of love. Winner of four Academy Awards - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Hoffman) and Best Original Screenplay - Rain Man is "one of the great ones... a poignant, profound and powerful film" (Joel Siegel, ABC-TV).

"My father has stuck it to me all my life," complains Charlie Babbitt (Cruise), a self-centered young hustler who feels he's been cheated out of his inheritance. But Charlie's in for a big surprise - Raymond (Hoffman), the autistic brother he never knew he had!

Discovering Raymond in an institution, Charlie abducts him in an effort to extort his 'fair share' of the family estate. But what begins as an unsentimental journey across the country evolves into a mystical odyssey of love and self-revelation, as Raymond helps Charlie grow beyond the limits of his handicapped heart. -- (C) MGM Home Entertainment, 1988, USA.
