Like To Kill a Mockingbird, [it's] one of those rare motion pictures that perfectly captures the essence of its source material without compromising it in any way.

The Grapes of Wrath is just about as good as any picture has a right to be; if it were any better, we just wouldn't believe our eyes.

John Ford's adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel is moving and heartfelt, despite its random structure and rambling, overwrought (and overly political) narrative.
