8 | A good drama that gives an idea of what living with an autistic person must be like
It's not very difficult to see why this movie won four Oscars and was nominated for four more. The academy loves movies...
Dustin Hoffman was originally supposed to play Charlie, but he wanted to play Raymond. Raymond was also supposed to be mentally disabled, but Hoffman changed it to an autistic savant.
Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?

Charlie: Three times...
The card scheme with all the Queens is repeated several times during the course of Charlie's play.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
