For our final presentation of the season and the last of my tenure as host of the classic film presentations, Rain Man (which won 4 Oscars in 1989) tells the story of an abrasive and 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. Together they go on a journey of discovery which begins reluctantly and unsentimental and ends (you’ll just have to come and see how it ends!)
