The Grapes of Wrath

The Grapes of Wrath is an almost-perfect adaptation one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Henry Fonda and Jane Darwell head a cast that firmly roots the movie in a realistic depiction of the tribulations and hardships experienced by Okies traveling to California. Their acting is not a series of scenes in which they get to loudly expose their acting muscles; it is a series of scenes ... read more

"If there was a law, they was workin' with maybe we could take it, but it ain't the law. They're workin' away our spirits, tryin' to make us cringe and crawl, takin' away our decency."

Based on the novel by John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath is a classic film that takes an honest and uncompromising look at life during the period of the Great Depression. This is an important film as... read more

"John Ford's screen adaptation of John Steinbeck's novel 'The Grapes of Wrath' is a fantastically realised tale of a large Oklahoma family, the Joads, making their way across the country to the promised land of California after losing their family farm to the Great Depression. With a great cast including Henry Fonda as Tom Joad and an Oscar-winning Jane Darwell in a moving turn as Ma Joad, 'The Grapes of Wrath' is directed with such raw authenticity that you can almost taste the dust being kicked"

"January 4th Directed by: John Ford I don't know if a film has ever made me want to read the book it was based on before. The plot is just so interesting in a way that really only books are, it's hard to explain but it's just so literary. Henry Fonda is ridiculously likable, but in the end I was left thinking maybe this story wasn't so much about Tom Joad. If this isn't John Ford's masterpiece I'd very much like to know what is."
