In Dubious Battle

Directed by James Franco


In the California apple country, 900 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 (Nat Wolff), the strike is founded on his tragic idealism – on the “courage never to submit or yield.” Published in 1936, the novel “In Dubious Battle” is considered the first major work of Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck.
