Summary: Gary Sinese directed this respectful re-telling of John Steinbeck's classic novel, with Sinese as the wily George and John Malkovich as the brutish, simple-minded Lennie. Set during the Depression era, the film opens as George and Lennie are running from a woman with a torn dress, who has sent a gang of ruffians to chase the two out of the county. After a long bus ride and a ten-mile walk, George and Lennie arrive at a migrant farm in California's San Joaquin Valley, where they seek work. George dreams of putting together enough money to buy a small piece of land where he and Lennie can build a home; he hopes that in California the two can realize their dream. Unfortunately, the foreman of the ranch, Curley (Casey Siemaszko), enjoys tormenting Lennie, while Curley's frustrated wife (Sherilyn Fenn) entices Lennie with her sexual allure. George warns Lennie to steer clear of Curley's wife, but Lennie follows her to a barn where a tragedy occurs and George and Lennie's dreams are shattered. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

It wasn't until 1992 that Chicago stage actor-director Gary Sinise made his mark in movies: first, with an impressive performance in the sleeper A Midnight Clear; and then as producer, director, and star of an adaptation of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. The latter work was a challenge, in light of the lionized source material as well as the highly regarded 1939 film version starring Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney Jr.. Working from a script by the legendary Horton Foote (To Kill a Mockingbird), Sinise's version is certainly much closer to Steinbeck's work than the earlier version. He makes George the emphasis of the film, and John Malkovich's Lennie is excellently underplayed. Strikingly photographed by Kenneth MacMillan, the film has an uncluttered visual style. After Mice, Sinise would become one of America's most prolific, respected character actors in films such as Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, and The Green Mile. ~ Brendon Hanley, Rovi
