Taylor John Smith,
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.
None of the elements of the story concerning "corrupt" labor organizers - sawing the ladder so that an old worker would fall, sacrificing Joy's and Mac's life - exist in the original Steinbeck novel. Steinbeck, who witnessed strikes and met many labor organizers in the 1930's depicted these characters as idealists, but in the film adaptation they are presented much less sympathetically, as manipulating and ruthless people.

James Franco really did a great job by asking Selena to do the role her giving birth scene was really realistic and i felt her pain its like she already experience it wow . like i said the cast was great with talented people and very creative editing and the production is good too . i heard that James called Selena a secret weapon in an interview . So I'm still surprised by that acting its really nice to see young actresses and actors giving all they got to make the movie worth the watch . I'm just here to say that Selena Gomez deserve an Oscar for that scene .
