The Grapes of Wrath

The Grapes of Wrath is quite a compelling movie, filled with many universal truths and observations on human nature and society, especially where class is concerned.
The movie is based on the John Steinbeck novel and takes place during the Great Depression in the 1930's when a dust bowl was created in America's heartland because of drought, over farming and loose topsoil.The movie centers on Tom Joad and the Joad family's experiences during this hard time.
