Of Mice and Men

The book begins with the “stage” set by the pond. In the film, we see George on a train first. Why would the director do this? What is the director telling us about George’s life?

Certain decisions are made on a movie script to accommodate entertainment and time considerations from its source material. In this case, I think the director was trying to underline the very transient life of farm workers.
