Can DNA test identify a distant relative?

I noticed most of the DNA testing in movies are done for direct parental identity. Is DNA also useful for identifying distant relatives? For example what if a very rich man wants to identify if a child is really the grandson of his mother's youngest sister and all of the child's nearest family members, e.g his parents, siblings, grand parents where all gone. Can DNA be tested between the man and the child to identify their family relation?
