Sat., March 18, 2pm – Of Mice and Men (1992, 1h 50m) – Based on John Steinbeck’s classic story, best friends & labourers Lennie (John Malkovich) and George (Gary Sinise) constantly have trouble finding work in Depression-era California due to Lennie’s infantile mental capacity. They get hired at a ranch, working under the strict supervision of the boss’ mean-spirited son. But after settling in and making friends, their world is ripped apart by tragedy when the beautiful but unhappy wife of the boss’ son becomes an innocent victim of Lennie’s compassion. Some profanity & violence, suitable for most viewers.
