Director: Anna Shapiro

Cast:
James Franco and Chris O’Dowd


In English with Bulgarian subtitles.

Globe winner and Academy Award nominee James Franco (127 Hours, Milk) and Tony Award nominee Chris O’Dowd star in this dramatization of the famous novella by Nobel laureate John Steinbeck. It gains attention right after its appearance in 1937 and tells the story of the difficulties and the friendship of two migrant workers during the Great Depression in California. James Franco plays big-dreaming George who fatherly protects the mentally disturbed but physically strong Lennie (Chris O’Dowd), who doesn’t know his own strength. Anna Shapiro stages a remarkable interpretation of Steinbeck’s stage adaptation achieving a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship. The production of the legendary “Longacre Theatre” is filmed on stage by National Theatre Live and becomes part of its programme for satellite broadcast to cinemas around the globe.
