It started with Lenny moping around about the rabbit he had killed and then Curley??s wife joined him. This scene ended in a surprising way, but in my opinion many interesting things were discussed about the concept of life.

- In the book and in the second movie Curley’s wife was not given a name. She was not given a name to symbolize that she was nothing more than a possession of Curley. Curley’s wife was given a name in the first movie. Her name was May. I think that the first movie we watched best depicted her because of the way she dressed.
- An ideal example of this would be Curley when he decides to target Lennie as a’frustration’ and subsequently attacks him with no real valid reason apart from jealousy and spite.
