Free Movie Night at The Book and Bean –

Head on down to the Book and Bean in Truckee for a free showing of “Of Mice and Men”. This John Steinbeck’s classic comes magnificently to life in this beautiful and stirring film starring Oscar nominees John Malkovich and Gary Sinise. Directed by Sinise from an adaptation by OscarĀ® winner Horton Foote, this “flawless miracle of movie-making” is a must-see for all audiences. Best friends Lennie (Malkovich) and George (Sinise) find themselves unemployed in Depression-era California, unable to keep jobs because of Lennie’s childlike mentality. But once they get hired at the Tyler Ranch, they enjoy a brief period of stability – until their supervisor’s wife (Sherilyn Fenn) becomes the victim of Lennie’s compassion, forcing George to make a compassionate decision of his own.
