Event Details

UCR Palm Desert's popular book-to-film series, Lit Flicks presents Of Mice and Men on Saturday, August 26, 2023 at the Palm Springs Cultural Center.

UCR Palm Desert's popular book-to-film series, Lit Flicks, is back for the summer! This season we're showing three movies adapted from young adult books that have been banned/challenged. Each free screening will be held at the Palm Springs Cultural Center and followed by a brief discussion about the adaptation.

About Of Mice and Men (1992): Itinerant worker George (Gary Sinise) reflects on the time he spent traveling with Lennie (John Malkovich), a huge childlike man. The two men drift through California during the Great Depression, looking for work. After they find jobs on a ranch, Lennie develops an infatuation with the owner's daughter-in-law (Sherilyn Fenn). However, when George and Lennie are handed an opportunity to own part of the ranch, Lennie's fascination with the woman threatens to destroy their dreams.
