The Real Rain Man

Whatever happened to the real Rain Man, the quiet genius Kim Peek, whose extraordinary life story inspired the character played by Dustin Hoffman? Since the Oscar-winning movie Rain Man became a worldwide hit, the 'world's greatest savant' Kim Peek has wowed and thrilled over half a million people, demonstrating his phenomenal brain power in a unique roadshow that travels around the USA. Brain-damaged at birth, everything Kim read he retained, and he learnt to do calculations at breathtaking speeds. When Hollywood scriptwriter Barry Morrow met him, he knew that his story had to be told - and the rest is history. This film is a moving account of a unique human relationship between Kim and his dedicated father; and meets four bedazzled teams of scientists who try to unravel Kim's remarkable brain power.
