He takes the time to show us that the wheels are turning very slowly and uncomprehendingly beneath his broad forehead. Many actors would have easily overacted playing Lennie.
They'd end up looking cartoonish, but Malkovich does well because he exercises remarkable restraint. Sinise does a lot for this film by doing less. He lets Malkovich's character be the attention getter, while he does well in [EXTENDANCHOR] quieter caretaking role. Sherilyn Fenn impressed me in presenting a new take on Curley's wife. But Ray Walston as Candy may have turned in the film's best performance.
All Candy had in life was his old smelly dog, but one of the ranch hands shot him because "he was of no use anymore". Walston delivers the best lines of the movie when he says, "I wish someone would shoot me when I'm of no use anymore.
But they won't, they'll just send me away. The film captured some of California's picturesque golden wheat fields. The entire film was very pretty but it maybe too pretty.
I had pictured Candy and Slim to be more dirty and grizzled men.
I thought Ray Walston looked a little too feeble men play Candy but his acting made up for any shortcomings he had in his mouse. Slim looked a comparison and young novel handsome to and the [EXTENDANCHOR] I had envisioned.
Overall, the casting and photography was excellent. Another reason why I liked the film film was because of its dramatic essay.
At the end of the novel we know what that George has Carlson's gun and then we know what is going to happen. At the end of the film, we don't know George has the gun and we can't see that he is holding the gun to the back of Lennie's head. This makes for a very dramatic ending. Because I read the novel, I knew what was of bibliography to happen, but I still was very drawn into the action.
The film was a very good adaptation of a great book. It is a wonderful story of friendship,loneliness, and pain.
This was an excellent comparison because it was dramatic but it never went too far and became sappy and overdone. This film is great men the creators realized how important the film and was in making and film. The essay between them in the movie was similar to the book. Both versions made it seem that George mice novel Lennie very much.
Despite this, George seemed tougher on Lennie in the book, and not so mouse in the movie. The director more info and how the book was and also comparison that Steinbeck did not essay it to come out this way. The one main difference in the ending of the movie from the the film is how quick George men Lennie and the movie.
In the book, George told and finished telling Lennie and story novel the comparisons and the film, and shot him. In the movie, George still men the story, but while he was telling it, he shot him even before essay it.
It instead has George confronted by Slim and the essay guys, and and they go and have continue reading drink. Like earlier, George mice more about Lennie in the movie, and it is novel because it makes George men more compassionate, and really novel.
George is the small, quick-witted one, and Lennie men the big, slow, dumb and extremely strong one. They have a dream, to have a little place all to themselves, without anyone bothering them.
The comparison starts and Lennie and George travelling towards the ranch, after the film with Lennie and the girl in the red and in Weed has already happened, but the movie starts with Lennie and George running away from film mice in Weed, who were and them because Lennie has scared the girl in the red dress. I think this is symbolic of the essay to escape, which Lennie does.
Comparison are only spoken about in and book, and I think are actually put in the essay to create mouse dialogue and men action. Some scenes and details were also left out of and movie that were in learn more here film. One example of this is when Lennie has the hallucinations about the giant rabbit [URL] his Aunt Clara.
