  • "Classic tale of two travelling companions, George and Lennie, who wander the country during the Depression, dreaming of a better life for themselves. Then, just as heaven is within their grasp, it is inevitably yanked away."
  • "The year is 1930. America is gripped by the Depression. But in a time of poverty and despair, two men refused to give up hope. Lennie (John Malkovich), feeble minded and naive and George (Gary Sinise), who is clever and resourceful, are a strange couple at first sight. Nevertheless they gain strength from their friendship, as they travel from town to town. Hungry and broke they arrive at the Tyler Ranch where they find work and shelter. But their peace is shattered by the arrival of a beautiful but bored young woman (Sherilyn Fenn), a woman who turns Lennie's hitherto simple life upside down - with shocking, fateful consequences. Of Mice And Men is a powerful and unforgettable adaptation of one of America's greatest novels, by John Steinbeck."

  • "Neuverfilmung des gleichnamigen Romans von John Steinbeck. Erzählt wird die Geschichte zweier Landarbeiter während der Depression in den USA. Durch die Bärenkräfte des geistig Zurückgebliebenen kommt es immer wieder zu Konflikten, die schließlich in einer Katastrophe enden. Ein gefühlvoller Film, der anrührt und fasziniert, ohne je kitschig zu werden. In der eher schlicht entwickelten Handlung kann er sich vor allem auf einen hervorragenden Hauptdarsteller verlassen.
