Product Description

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

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

This film is nearly ten years old now - and every time I watch it, one question springs to my mind: "Why doesn't Gary Sinise direct anymore?"
This is quite simply one of the most fantastic movie adaptations of a classic novel ever made. True to the content and spirit of the book, Sinise is a big fan of Steinbeck, and it shows. This is lovingly crafted and packs all the emotional punch of the beautiful novel.
The script, by Oscar-winning screen writer Horton Foote, is just esquisite, and as always, it will ultimately break your heart.
John Malkovich as Lenny, the brain-damaged lumbering farm-hand with more strength than he knows how to control, puts in one of the finest performances of his career, and it's been a pretty impressive career.
Gary Sinise - in a performance which brought him the attention he always deserved but Malkovich got - is faultless. He is a powerhouse performer, and a cinematic treasure. As a director, he has a clear vision of Depression era America which be evokes vividly and tells this powerful tale simply and elegantly.
All in all, if you haven't seen this movie, you should. If you like good story-telling and the retro-feel of a movie like The Shawshank Redemption, then see this. It's pure and simple, and simply terrific.

This is a truly excellent version of Steinbeck's classic, directed by actor Gary Sinise several years before "Apollo 13" and "Forrest Gump" made him a recognized star. Sinise plays George, the friend and travelling companion of simple-minded Lenny. Their performances are excellent, as is the supporting cast, especially Joe Morton (Crooks), Casey Siemaszko (Curley), Ray Walston (Candy) and John Terry (Slim). The visuals are simply stunning -- unlike the 1939 black and white version, the beautiful colors give the ranch and its surrounds a life of their own. Mark Isham wrote the haunting soundtrack music.
The only negative about this DVD has nothing to do with the film itself, but with the skimpiness of the DVD release. While MGM has seen fit to release special editions of forgettable (but apparently marketable) titles such as "Phantasm" and "Antitrust," this stunning version of an American classic does not merit a Dolby 5.1 remix or any special features. This is truly a shame, especially considering that Sinise has indicated he would be willing to go to work on a special edition and restore deleted scenes, provide a commentary, etc. Shame on you, MGM. Nonetheless, this DVD is well worth owning for the film itself.
