Angry that his inheritance has gone to an autistic brother he never knew he had, a self-involved workaholic attempts to swindle it away from him. Instead, he learns a thing or two about love and compassion.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
I like these classic "trip-across-America" drama movies, but I found this one so boring and overrated. Would have never guessed that it's in fact a Best Picture Oscar winner.
I didn't even think that Dustin Hoffman's role was that good to be honest.
Everything was too forced: one minute Cruise's character is using his brother to win money in Vegas and the next he is this loving and comprehensive man.
81/100 (Başları ve işlenişi Hollywood klişelerine boğsa da, Cruise'un o dönemki toy oyunculuğu ve senaryodaki abartıları izleyeni usandırsa da iyi ki izlemişim dediğim bir film oldu. Her zaman farkındalık filmlerini sevmişimdir. Bu farkındalığı yaratan Dustin Hoffman olunca izlerken hem güldürüyor hem de duygulandırıyor. Aslında bu film Hoffman'ın dediği gibi kardeş-abi değil dost ilişkisini içtenlikle anlatıyor.)
my favorite Hoffman character of all time, and probably my favorite movie about understanding mental disability and the people who have them - if you don't cry at least once during this movie you're probably really good at not crying during movies
Touching. I loved so much this movie and the soundtrack so hard that I choose it for my on floor exercise, winning (also on the balance beam) my first junior artistic gymnastics gold medal.
I knew the music would have ruled. I can still remember the choreography. Relax! I'm not going to perform it again, ever.
This is what happens when you combine a brilliant actor with a great screenplay. It is not a masterpiece and it'll probably won't be referred later on in your film history class, but it is fuzzy and wonderful all the same.
