Meeting The Real Rain Man - Real Stories
Rain Man at 30: damaging stereotype or 'the best thing that happened to autism'?
When the Oscar-winning screenwriter Barry Morrow had the idea for Rain Man, he had barely heard of the condition. It was a tale of two estranged brothers, their journey and then their fragile redemption. Charlie, bequeathed a Buick Roadmaster convertible, kidnaps Raymond and the pair embark on a road trip. Morrow took inspiration for the plot from his own life: he once kidnapped a man with learning disabilities named Bill Sackter to prevent him from being sent back to an institution. Raymond was played by Dustin Hoffman, then 50 and a character actor at the peak of his powers, alongside the Top Gun hotshot Tom Cruise, 25, as Charlie. In his youth, Hoffman had worked at the New York Psychiatric Institute ; for Rain Man he spent a year intensively researching autistic and savant individuals including Temple Grandin, Joseph Sullivan, who had incredible skills with numbers, and savant twins George and Charles.
The film opens with Charlie Babbitt depicted by Cruise in one of his finest performances , a narcissistic and selfish young wheeler-dealer in Los Angeles who is struggling to resolve an impending crisis for his car dealership over its failure to comply with EPA standards. However, upon suddenly learning of the death of his estranged father, Charlie abruptly changes course for Cincinnati in order to attend the funeral with the preeminent desire to discover what inheritance he may have been left. The funds have in fact been entrusted to a trustee who oversees their distribution to the Walbrook Institute where Raymond lives. A treatment facility for people with mental and developmental disabilities, it has been home for at least 20 years to Raymond who is arguably moderately high-functioning but still unable to really care for himself and all that entails. In addition, the director Dr. The ensuing road trip is a journey filled with humor but also with extreme aggravation. In one particularly funny scene, Raymond walks in on Charlie and Susanna having sex, the concept of which is foreign to him, and imitates their private vocalizations as he watches TV in their room.
It tells the story of an abrasive, selfish young wheeler-dealer Charlie Babbitt Tom Cruise , who discovers that his estranged father has died and bequeathed all of his multimillion-dollar estate to his other son, Raymond Dustin Hoffman , an autistic savant , of whose existence Charlie was unaware. Charlie is left with only his father's car and collection of rose bushes. In addition to the two leads, Valeria Golino stars as Charlie's girlfriend, Susanna. Morrow created the character of Raymond after meeting Kim Peek , a real-life savant; his characterization was based on both Peek and Bill Sackter , a good friend of Morrow who was the subject of Bill , an earlier film that Morrow wrote. Rain Man was the highest-grossing film of Its crew received an additional four nominations. Charlie Babbitt is in the middle of importing four Lamborghinis to Los Angeles for resale.
