Of mice and men - The EssaySo, John Malkovich plays Lennie, one of the main characters, who is very different from the other characters. The setting of this story is a Californian farm, in 1930´s. On this farm is a very hard life, everybody is terrorized by the boss ´s son Curley. When Lennie and George come to this farm, every thing changes. They are both nice to every single person, which works on the farm, except to Curley and his wife. One of this characters is very difficult to give a form to. It is Lennie. But there is one person, who did it, John Malkovich. So in my opinion, John Malkovich portrays the character of Lennie very well.The bodily movement and acting of John ...view middle of the document...

So, John Malkovich has a great performance where he can persuade that he carries a 60 kilograms heavy bag.If I did not know that it is a film, I would have thought that it was real. When I was looking at John Malkovich , I thought that I was looking at Lennie. Maybe you do not understand why , so let me explain it. While I was watching the movie, I got carried away and I didn´t realize that it was John M., not Lennie. The movie has inside it some very strong power. And John Malkovich took a big responsibility of his role, because there are not many actors in Hollywood, who would have act, like J.M. did. He is an actor, who materializes all of the criteria of Lennie´s character. He is tall, looks very strong and unlike from Lennie he is a responsible person, who has played in many movies. I admire him, because he can play an irresponsible character. But the irresponsibility depends on Lennie´s handicap. For example the scene where he kills the little dog, he doesn´t know, that he is doing a bad thing, but after he does it, he realizes that he did a very bad thing. But here we can even see George´s irresponsibility. George knew that Lennie was stupid, but he liked him, so he allowed him to pet the pup. I like the scene, which wasn´t in the book: Lennie acts, that he has the pup under his shirt, but he is just making fun of George. And I like here the acting of J.M., because it really looks like he has the pup there. From this you can see that I can´t imagine any other actor in this role.John Malkovich´s performance helps you better understand the character of Lennie. His feelings are changing very fast - sometimes he is bad, sometimes...
