Grapes of Wrath
Even though the critics didn't like that the movie was depressing and pretentious, it was still became a huge hit with the audience. The reason it was so popular was because it portrayed realism. With the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, the farmers had to leave their land, which made matters more difficult and hard to cope with. Families had to pack up, leave the homes they grow up and travel all the way to California to try to find work. Even though it was during a challenging time to live in,they had strength and courage to keep moving forward. When I watched this movie, I see that it captures the understanding of what happened in the 1930s. The audience could relate to the storytelling, because it showed the truth of the things they've been through. The actors did amazing job with delivering their lines and speeches. The Grapes of Wrath movie, showed that these poor people were trying to work together day by day just to survive. Its amazing movie that became greatly respected by the audience.
