Rain Man, the timeless classic and winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Director, is making its 4K Ultra HD format debut on May 30th. The new restoration, a just completed 4K high definition 16-Bit Scan of the original camera negative, has been approved by director Barry Levinson and is presented in its original 1.85:1 Aspect Ratio in Dolby Vision / HDR.
Starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, Rain Man tells the story of two estranged brothers on a life-changing road trip across America. Charlie Babbitt (Cruise) is stunned to learn that his recently deceased father has left his entire fortune to his autistic brother Raymond (Hoffman), who he never knew existed. In a desperate bid to grab some, if not all, of the inheritance, Charlie kidnaps Raymond, but what starts as a money-making scheme quickly turns into a journey of discovery between two brothers who are worlds apart.
The two-disc 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray 35th Anniversary Edition of Rain Man is packed with supplemental material, including three audio commentaries (one with director Barry Levinson, one with co-writer Barry Morrow, and a third with co-writer Ronald Bass). Additionally, fans can enjoy several making-of and behind-the-scenes featurettes, including The Journey of Rain Man, Lifting the Fog: A Look at the Mysteries of Autism, a deleted scene, and the original theatrical trailer.
Rain Man remains an essential film that has touched audiences around the world with its heartfelt and poignant story of family, love, and acceptance.
