Rainman Soundtrack

Rain Man, starring Dustin Hoffman as Raymond Babbitt and Tom Cruise as Charlie Babbitt, was a drama that hit the movie circuit in 1988.  Rain Man received positive reviews from critics, and ended up becoming the highest grossing film of 1988.  The film won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor (Dust Hoffman), Best Director, and Best Writing. 

In this movie about brotherly love, Cruise plays the role of Charlie Babbitt, an exotic car dealer who is one step away from losing a major sell due to financial issues.  When Charlie learns that his estranged father has died, and his father’s $3 million dollar estate was left to an unnamed trustee who lived at a mental institution.  Upon further investigation, Charlie learns that the unnamed trustee is his older brother, Raymond, who he never knew about.  Raymond is in the mental institution because he is an autistic savant, very good with numbers, but OCD and emotionally detached otherwise.

Charlie breaks Raymond out of the institution with the intention of gaining custody of Raymond to get his hands on the inheritance.  As they set out on a drive to Los Angeles, Charlie begins to get to know his brother better.  Charlie realizes that the person he called “Rain Man” as a very young child, was actually his older brother, Raymond.  After learning of Raymond’s unique math abilities, Charlie gets the idea to take Raymond gambling in Las Vegas for some card counting.  After Raymond won big for Charlie, Charlie has enough money to cover his exotic vehicle debt plus more.  When the mental institution offers Charlie $250k to bring Raymond back, Raymond refuses the money, but does bring Raymond back, saying he no longer cares about the inheritance, but instead with having a relationship with his big brother.
