    Very beautiful and powerful film, and to think that alot of people really lived like that during the great depression. Also i just loved the performance by Henry Fonda! 8 years ago

    This movie is amazing and oh so sad. I just want to add some photographers' names that took some pictures in great depression and Farm security administration time and I recommend you google them up if you want to know more about this period: Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn.Their pictures are very moving just like this movie is. 7 years ago

    You know you've watched a good movie when you do a six page analysis on it and still feel the need to watch it again. They couldn't have picked a better director to portray the torturous pursuit that was the American Dream in the 1930's. Brilliantly done. 8 years 5 months ago
