Description

In Dubious Battle

An activist gets caught up in the labor movement for farm workers in California during the 1930s.

In the California apple country, nine hundred migratory workers rise up “in dubious battle” against the landowners. The group takes on a life of its own-stronger than its individual members and more frightening. Led by the doomed Jim Nolan, the strike is founded on his tragic idealism-on the “courage never to submit or yield.” Published in 1936, In Dubious Battle is considered the first major work of Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck.

Mac McLeod (James Franco) and Jim Nolan (Nat Wolff) arrive at a Depression-era fruit farm in California and begin to rally the workers to unionize for better working conditions. Franco directed this adaptation of John Steinbeck's 1936 no­vel.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Perfectly paced and skillfully cast, “In Dubious Battle” is one of those small films that occasionally see the light of day " – Michael A. Smith
  • " A band of fruit pickers struggle with hopelessness and keeping their souls alive during a strike. " – Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
  • " Franco's first watchable dramatic feature. " – Owen Gleiberman
