The Grapes of Wrath

Posted by martinteller on October 25, 2004

“Rich folk come up an’ they die, an’ their kids ain’t no good an’ they die out. But we keep acoming, Pa, cuz’ we’re the people that live.”  Spare me.  Grapes of Wrath is loaded with this kind of good ole homespun wisdom.  It’s annoying and it’s insulting.  Maybe this kind of dialogue could work on the printed page, in the context of a larger work, but spoken by actors on the screen it’s just awful.  Rating: 5
