109/365: Rain Man (1988)

Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt’s father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.

Director: Barry Levinson

Writers: Barry Morrow (story) and Ronald Bass (screenplay) …

Stars: Dustin HoffmanTom Cruise, and Valeria Golino

This movie was great, obviously.  I’d seen bits and pieces before, but not start to finish.  I still don’t understand how Tom Cruise is supposed to be good looking even when he was young.  Dustin Hoffman was AMAZING, but it did scare me a little when he did some things that I do, like mimicking the buzzing sound when they drove over a bridge, and freaking out when people come in and move his things around his room, especially his books.  I keep it hidden better, of course.  Anyway, the end was touching, and I enjoyed this movie a lot.  I was also impressed by the direction.
