Rain Man Theme: Family

By Dajhir Adams


In the movie Rain Man the theme i saw to be most impacting was family. In the movie Charlie begins an arrogant, hotheaded, owner of a car dealership. But when he meets his autistic brother he begins to have a change in personality and he eventually grows a sense of compassion and patience. The theme of family is meant to show us the power that family has in our lives.


"Raymond: I’m an excellent driver.
Charlie: When did you drive?
Raymond: I drove slow on the driveway when my dad came to Walbrook.
Charlie: Was Dad in the car?
Raymond: Yeah.
Charlie: I’ll have to let you drive sometime."
