Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 12/16/1988
"...[For] Hoffman, RAIN MAN is a star's dream of a role....A becomingly modest, decently thought-out, sometimes funny film..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/16/1988
"...Hoffman makes all this hypnotically interesting..."
USA Today - 09/01/1989
"...Dustin Hoffman, unforgettable as an autistic savant, again makes you wonder how many milestones one actor can accrue in a career..."
Total Film - 07/01/2000
"...Hoffman steals the show..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/13/2004
"Fifteen years after it won Best Picture, Barry Levinson's fable still resonates."
Total Film - 07/01/2006
"Cruise gets serious, showing a generous willingness to play straight man to a flashier performance."

Plot Synopsis:

After their father dies, a smooth-talking businessman is reunited with his autistic older brother to whose caretakers his father left a fortune. Needing the money himself, he kidnaps him for a rocky cross-country drive only to discover the void his brother had filled in his empty childhood.
