In the movie, “Of Mice and Men” Weed was very different than the one in the novel. First and foremost, the lady in the red dress chased Lennie and George; the book did not portray it that way. The men were also chasing Lennie and George. I believe the director chose to do it this way because it brings action, and it also makes it more interesting it.

Most aren't positive, though. I feel it sums up the book very well. It reflects strong, developed characters that are unique, and it shows historic truth. I picture people without families that work from place
