Rain Man (1988) is a drama directed by Barry Levinson about Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise), an embittered and arrogant man who feels cheated by life, and especially by his father, who left the bulk of his estate to an unknown person, Raymond (Dustin Hoffman), a man diagnosed with autism and Savant Syndrome.

Life Lesson:

It’s natural to love and care for someone, even if they can’t care for or love you back.

Movie Scene:

Charlie: “I understand that this sounds irrational to you. Yes, when it started out, it had that […] See, you have to understand that when we started out together, that he was only my brother in name. And as… And this morning we had pancakes.”

Raymond: “Maple syrup. Maple syrup on, maple syrup on the table. And Charlie Babbitt made a joke.”

Charlie: “You see, we… I made a connection.”
