Of Mice and Men

Two drifters, George and Lenny, take on ranch work to collect enough money to buy their own farm. A beautiful and compassionate portrayal of the complex bond between the two men is shown against the background of the harsh realities of rural life in Depression-era America. By the Nobel prize-winning author known for his masterful depiction of the dreams and aspirations of the common man.
