Having just celebrated the 4th of July, which is a holiday rooted in American history, it proves perfect timing in regards to reviewing the documentary The Bikes of Wrath. The film, which follows the path of the classic Steinbeck novel "The Grapes of Wrath,"celebrates the 80th anniversary of the book, while simultaneously explores the history of the Dust Bowl. An adventure which follows (ironically) a group of Australians on a quest to explore the same migration route that left a mark in American history. Interesting and revealing of true humility and humanity, the film is both educational and feel-good. It is a testament to spirit and camaraderie of mankind.
