Oscar nominated Dustin Hoffman, Hollywood heart-throb Tom Cruise and Barry Levinson, director of Good Morning Vietnam, bring a funny and moving tale of brotherly love too the screen.
Heartless Charlie Babbit expects a vast inheritance after his estranged father dies. But Raymond, his institutionalized older brother, someone he's been totally unaware of, is willed the entire fortune instead. Raymond is an 'autistic savant' with severely limited mental abilities in some areas but with genius gifts in others.
And when Charlie kidnaps Raymond, the crazy cross-country drive back to Los Angeles teaches them both a few lessons in life. For as they overcome their mutual distrust of each other, a dep bond is forged as they painfully share past memories, present problems and a possible shining future together.
Director: Barry Levinson
Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise, Valeria Golino, Gerald R. Molen, Jack Murdock, Michael D. Roberts, Ralph Seymour, Lucinda Jenney, Bonnie Hunt, Kim Robillard
