Raymond’s autism is a high functioning variety: he can engage in conversations and seems to know what is going on around him, but exhibits several distinct behavioral idiosyncrasies. The tension of the movie lies in Raymond’s brother, Charlie, played by Tom Cruise, wanting the money for himself. Charlie “rescues” Raymond from the institution and the trio (Charlie’s fiancé is also present) crosses the country in an antique Buick. During their road trip, Raymond exhibits many of the behaviors of his autism, some of which work as an impediment to the trio’s progress, and some of which work to its advantage. At the end of the movie, Raymond is re-institutionalized, having grown significantly in his social skills, self-concept, and self-reliance, and also have contributed to the growth of Charlie, who learns to accept Raymond’s differences and care for him in a supportive rather than abrasive manner.
The character of Raymond Babbitt has several distinct behavioral characteristics
that link his disability to the savant classification instead of just autism. This condition is in reality much rarer than autism, the prevalence of which was previously mentioned. The autistic characteristics displayed by the character of Raymond that is not linked to his being a savant are multiple. First of all, Raymond is very interested in rituals. He cannot let an episode of “The People’s Court” go by without an intricate ritual describing his involvement with the television program. His fascination with the television show borders on obsession, showing the trait of obsession that often marks autistic behavior. Raymond is also extremely resistant to change, which is another typical autistic behavior. He cannot easily get used to new situations, especially when he is initially accosted by his brother, Charlie. Although this typical autistic behavior changes as the movie progresses and Raymond is less anxious in new situations and more at ease .with himself, other behaviors do not change.
