Grapes of Wrath

With big blockbusters continually capturing the hearts of young audiences, it has to mean something that a quiet, black-and-white period film about a poor family struggling through the Depression finds its way into IMDB’s top movies of all time. Released in 1940, John Ford’s deeply moving version of John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath packs a powerful wallop. And if the story of a man trying to provide for his family in a harsh economic climate resonates with you a little too much, fret not—the screening is free!
