Rain Man (1988)

 Rated R. There’s some swearing going on here and there.

It’s Oscar Month! Next 100 Project episode #93 is an excellent podcast. Definitely. Yeah. This revered Oscar-winner from ’88 has two amazing—but very different—leading performances from Dustin Hoffman & Tom Cruise. Flaws exist, of course (particularly with the real-life exploits of those 2 stars), but this road trip is…yeah, it can be said….worth taking. Oh, and you can get 10% off your first order of Sparkplug Coffee if you use the discount code “Top100Project”. So definitely use it!

For The Record: Shelley Winters won Best Supporting Actress and Martin Balsam won Best Supporting Actor in 1965.
