Upon the death of his wealthy but estranged father, self-centered auto dealer/hustler Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) learns of his institutionalized autistic savant brother Raymond (Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman) whom he never knew he had, and who has inherited most of Dad's fortune in a trust fund. Charlie kidnaps Raymond and takes him on a road trip while trying to figure out how to wrest away the millions. The cross-country trip becomes a journey of discovery for both men. Directed by Barry Levinson, who won the Oscar for his efforts, along with Best Picture.
