George describes how the two will one day have their own piece of land, and how Lennie will tend and pet their rabbits. The acting performances in this film are acceptable. George and Lennie are an odd pair, with George being quick and wiry while Lennie is large and mentally underdeveloped.
Lennie tries to keep her quiet but accidentally breaks her neck in the process. As they camp that evening, Lennie asks George to tell him again about their dream, as he has numerous times, and George reluctantly agrees.
Those who like the novel itself or are just fans of literatures in general should give this movie a look.
George is introduced to his work team, Slim John Terrythe head of the team, who is greatly respected, and Carlson. Just as it seems that the dream is moving closer to reality, Curley comes by and accuses Slim of keeping his wife company as the workers mock Curley back. They dream of having their own little ranch where they can be their own masters and Lennie can tend the small, furry creatures that he loves but is constantly destroying, so unaware is he of his own strength.
However, the attempt is interrupted when Curley enters the barn and confronts George, who threatens to beat him to a pulp and have him fired if he catches him fraternizing with his wife again. The look of the film offers an easy respite from the grimness of the story, but at a definite cost to its dramatic impact.
Overall, Of Mice and Men is a pretty good translation of the novel into motion picture, as the story is kept largely intact and most of the elements of setting and mood are present. As George gets to the part where Lennie gets to tend the rabbits, he shoots Lennie in the back of the head.
You never sense the conflicts and frustrations underpinning both his loyalty to Lennie and his desire to escape. The voice becomes too high pitched and the body movement becomes an annoying fidgeting motion.
She is apparently under-directed, her natural sensuality buried beneath the heavy period makeup.
Of Mice and Men was first published in and was adapted for the screen two years later in a classic version directed by Lewis Milestone. George finds Lennie first and, wanting to spare him a violent and painful death at the hands of the mob, calms Lennie by retelling their dream.
In the barn that evening, Lennie has accidentally killed his puppy and is greatly upset. This movie review was actually written for my English class, and not for film class. Curley leads a mob which chases after Lennie intending to lynch him.
I remember seeing a trail The film has some good points about it, but overall it is just an average movie.You are used to seeing him play the tough or kind of scary, better not cross kind of character.
In this movie he plays Lennie, a dimwitted "man child" who is being looked after, in a sense, by Gary Sinise's Character George. Following them through this movie you feel like you become a part of it.
