Product Description

Amazon.ca

A strong argument favors Gary Sinise's 1992 Of Mice and Men over the classic 1939 version that critics have historically preferred. As adapted by the great playwright-screenwriter Horton Foote, John Steinbeck's Depression-era masterpiece comes alive with timeless simplicity, more candid in language and behavior, and therefore more honest in its embrace of Steinbeck's beloved pair of lowly dreamers George (Sinise) and his retarded cousin Lennie (John Malkovich). On the lam, they find work as farmhands, joining a close-knit crew and trying to avoid trouble stirred by the dangerously seductive wife (Sherilyn Fenn) of the boss's sadistic son (Casey Siemaszko). There's not a false note or bad performance in the entire film; as veterans of Chicago's acclaimed Steppenwolf Theater, Malkovich and Sinise possess the compassionate chemistry that makes George and Lennie inseparable until the tragic, inevitable final scene. As director, Sinise serves the material with no-frills fidelity; it's easy to believe that Steinbeck would have approved. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

John Steinbeck’s classic comes magnificently to life in this beautiful and stirring film starring Oscar® nominees* John Malkovich and Gary Sinise. Directed by Sinise from an adaptation by Oscar® winner** Horton Foote, this “flawless miracle of movie-making” (Susan Granger, “American Movie Classics”) is a must-see for all audiences. Best friends Lennie (Malkovich) and George (Sinise) find themselves unemployed in Depression-era California, unable to keep jobs because of Lennie’s childlike mentality. But once they get hired at the Tyler Ranch, they enjoy a brief period of stability – until their supervisor’s wife (Sherilyn Fenn) becomes the victim of Lennie’s compassion, forcing George to make a compassionate decision of his own. *Malkovich: Supporting Actor, In the Line of Fire (1993), Places in the Heart (1984); Sinise: Supporting Actor, Forrest Gump (1994) **1983: Original Screenplay, Tender Mercies; 1962: Adapted Screenplay, To Kill a Mockingbird

If you have read the book but haven't seen the movie, you are making a (as Donald Trump would say) "HUGE" mistake. Acting was created so Gary Sinise and John Malkovich could play these roles! And I really mean that.
I have read John Steinbeck's novel a few times. I am seriously bothered by the constant "using the Lord's name in vain" in all of Steinbeck's novel, but that doesn't discount the fact that he is a great writer - one of the best of all time. When I finally got to watch the movie, I was blown away by what a great job Malkovich and Sinise did playing their characters. But I was even more blown away by the rest of the actors ability to step up to the plate too. Every character was just as I pictured them in my head.
There are a few scenes that are not exactly as they were in the book: Curley's wife confronts George while he is alone in the barn...that's not in the book. Candy walks in on Lennie and Crook in Crook's room which is not in the movie. But these little changes matter not...the soul of each character is captured perfectly by this amazing movie!
Lennie and George are partners in their walk through life, and they couldn't be more opposite: Lennie (Malkovich) is a child in a big man's body, and George (Sinise) is the quick thinking (though never quite quick enough) sidekick determined to watch after his friend. The two actors are amazing on screen; I could almost swear they were having a contest to see who could actually (really) change in to their character. I think it was a tie!
I wish I could give it six stars - not an option though.
See ya next review!

4.0 out of 5 stars Film-like transfer for the Special Edition May 19 2004
Format:DVD
Fans of this movie version of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" will be happy to find that its Special Edition transfer is quite good, on par with major DVD releases of the most recent films. The picture quality is first-rate: color and contrast are superb, edge halos are rarely visible, and the picture depth gives the video a very film-like appearance. The golden-hued depictions of Central California are really brought to life. The excellent transfer will be greatly appreciated on larger screens. The audio itself is nothing special, owing to its lower budget origins, but it is clear.
The Special Edition was made as a "flipper" disc (presumably DVD-14, which is rarely used these days): one side has the movie, and other side is devoted to special features.
"Of Mice and Men" was mostly overlooked when it was released in 1992, but Gary Sinise made a very capable adaptation (from Horton Foote's screenplay). The highlight is an excellent performance by John Malkovich -- playing against type -- as Lennie. The movie is very straightforward, which allows for Steinbeck's grounded observations on humanity to come to life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie March 19 2004
By Clayton
Format:DVD
Of Mice and Men is a wonderfully done movie that is faithful to the book in every way. Gary Sinise, the director, did a fantastic job transforming the book into the movie. While reading the novel, a movie of images that the book created was played out in my mind. What I saw in my mind while reading the novel was exactly what I saw on the screen of Gary Sinise's film. Sinise took the book word for word and even made several parts into a comedic scene. Sinise as George and John Malkovich as Lenny, make a brilliant on screen duo. Malkovich had a superb performance as mentally retarded Lenny. He fit in perfectly into character and made me believe that he had the mental capacity that Lenny had. Ray Walston, who played the role of candy, portrayed an old man with almost nothing left. He was extremely attached to his dog, which was shot to be put out of his misery. That left him with nothing but the dream of George and Lenny. This was a great movie that was done to perfection and I recommend it to anyone.

Review of Of Mice and Men
The Film Of Mice and Men is based on a novel by John Steinbeck. It is a very compelling story about two entirely different men who depend on each other in many ways. The two main characters in the novel are played by Gary Sinise as George, and John Malkovich as Lennie. Sinise who is also the director of the film, does a wonderful job following the novel and showing us a clear illustration of the story. George and Lennie are two farm workers who travel around looking for work. Lennie Small who is a very large man, suffers from a mental disorder, and depends on a much smaller man in George to take care of him. This story truly shows how two men can be the best of friends and worst of enemies at the same time. George sacrifices so much for Lennie, he not only takes care of himself and his own problems, but also those of Lennie. After reading the novel and watching the movie, I would highly recommend this novel and film to anyone who enjoys great stories about friendship and sacrifice.
