Movies about People with Mental Retardation

Of Mice and Men

Based on John Steinbeck's 1937 classic tale of two travelling companions, George and Lennie, who wander the country during the Depression, dreaming of a better life for themselves. Then, just as heaven is within their grasp, it is inevitably yanked away. The film follows Steinbeck's novel closely, exploring questions of strength, weakness, usefulness, reality and utopia, bringing Steinbeck's California vividly to life.

The classic John Steinbeck tale of two friends - George and Lennie - who wander the country during the Depression. Lennie is mentally retarded and doesn't know his own strength causing frequent problems for his companion George. An incident with a young girl leads to a tragic end for this classic American tale.
