Film - Of Mice and Men (1992) Directed by Gary Sinise
Two drifters wander the country looking for work during the Great Depression. Quick-witted George (Gary Sinise) and mentally disabled Lennie (John Malkovich) become field hands at the Tyler Ranch. George provides the brains while Lennie provides the brawn, but trouble follows as the other ranch hands become suspicious of the mismatched pair. Lennie’s love for soft things gets him in trouble and forces George to abandon their dream of owning their own land. Based on the 1937 novella by John Steinbeck, this film continues our series of films based on books.
