schema:description"John Ford's "The Grapes of Wrath" is a left-wing parable, directed by a right-wing American director, about how a sharecropper's son, a barroom brawler, is converted into a union organizer. Tom Joad, paroled convict, returns to his family farm in Oklahoma, only to learn the Joads have been "tractored off the land" and are joining the desperate migration to California. The grand Westward movement of American settlement finds small shareholders forced off their land by bankers and big landholders. "The Grapes of Wrath" expresses the nation's rage about the Depression in poetic, Biblical terms, and shows half a nation with the economic rug pulled out from under it. The story--about the resiliency and courage of "the people"--Is built on a foundation of fear: Fear of losing jobs, land, and self-respect. To those who have felt that fear, have gone hungry or been homeless, it will never become dated, while today its sense of injustice is perhaps even more relevant."@en
