thoroughly uncomfortably underwhelmed

Somehow this was on the list of a "must see" movie I never saw. I finally got around to it. i'm guessing it just didn't age well. Of course Dustin Hoffman's performance is great, but the rest? Either as part of some story or just as supporting actor, Tom Cruise's heavy-handed asshole character strains credulity. Every scene is uncomfortable and not because Raymond is autistic, but because Charlie is yelling at Raymond and giving him commands like a bad dog owner.

UnderRated

I think this movie is an excellent story of building an emotional connection between Charlie and his autistic brother. Despite their differences, yet are they able to love and understand each other the way no other than own brother could. The movie is funny and emotional. It will make you think about it even weeks after watching it. Its old, but gold. The more you think about it the better it gets

I recommend!

A brotherly love

After the death of his father, a young car dealer with a troubled childhood gets shocked by two pieces of information which are received simultaneously. He received next to nothing from his father's fortune and he has a brother who's existence was kept secret all his life. He begins a desperate attempt to convince the lawyers that he deserves half of the fortune by using his autistic brother as exchange but ends up bonding with him, while all the money are put on a distant plan.

It's an interesting approach in terms of character and point of view changes which occur suddenly for an introverted person who thought only about himself. Due to the high quality of the two main actors and their execution, we're presented a very interesting and emotional story of an unexpected bond between two very different characters, despite the natural difficulties of one of them. Their adventures are described in great detail but unfortunately the action is pretty static and tends to become repetitive. Although trying hard to induce something different towards the end, the movie's finale is abrupt and predictable.

It's a very good movie, especially when talking about acting and characters, but it left me with the impression that they could have done a bit more about the plot, especially when it comes to the final part. I was expecting a masterpiece, just like "A Beautiful Mind" which simply left me breathless, but it wasn't able to raise that high.
