Director Bio

James Franco

Director Bio

James Franco is an actor, director, screenwriter, producer, teacher and author. He began his career on Freaks and Geeks and received a Golden Globe Award for his performance in the biographical film James Dean. Notable film credits include the Spider-Man trilogy, Milk (2008), and 127 Hours (2010), for which he received Academy Award, SAG and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor.


James Franco directs (and takes a key role in) this impressively mounted adaptation of the 1936 John Steinbeck novel, delivering a film that feels like an authentic slice of rural Americana, driven by social anger. Franco and Nat Wolff play members of ‘The Party’ who encourage fruit pickers to strike against a tough boss (Robert Duvall on top form), who had promised a fair wage but then reduced it by two thirds, leading to an increasingly brutal standoff.
