Don Lockwood (played by Gene Kelly) is a renowned silent film star. But with the introduction of sound film, he faces a career challenge -- with sound, everyone will discover that his co-starring brother (played by Dustin Hoffman) is autistic and has trouble dealing with day to day life. His brother makes the best of the situation by becoming a bizarre and puzzling stand-up comedian who indulges in bizarre flights of fancy like reading the Great Gatsby to college students and going onstage as abusive nightclub performer Tony Clifton. Milos Forman directs this beloved musical with original score by R.E.M.
