John Steinbeck’s classic follows George and simple-minded Lennie, walking the highways of California in search of jobs to make ends meet. Surrounded by the Depression, the dream of having their own farm keeps them drifting from town to town. But that dream is lost when Lennie unknowingly jeopardizes everything.

Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
