(1940) Outstanding adaptation of John Steinbeck’s novel about an Okie family who lose their farm and join other Dust Bowl refugees on the road to exploitation as migrant workers. Told with gritty realism but with a compassion that still engages viewers, director John Ford’s definitive portrait of uprooted and dispossessed Americans during the Depression features compelling performances by a superior cast, including Henry Fonda as young Tom Joad, perplexed and angry that people are starving in a land of plenty, and Jane Darwell as the formidable Ma Joad whose perseverance and optimism keep the family together. Brutalizing conditions of poverty and some violence. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) TCM (cable)
