National Theatre of London on the Big Screen: Of Mice and Men

Tony Award® nominee Chris O’Dowd stars as simple-minded Lennie Small, while Golden Globe® winner and Academy Award® nominee James Franco plays the intelligent George Milton in the Broadway revival of John Steinbeck’s tragic Of Mice and Men. It’s the story of two farmworkers who are able to face adversity and poverty because of their strong friendship. O’Dowd won one of the production’s two Tony Award® nominations for Best Performance by an Actor, and both he and Franco have been universally praised for the strength and depth of their performances. Filmed on the stage by the National Theatre Live, Of Mice and Men is being broadcast for one night only.
