Movie Review ~ Hunger

Hunger was disturbing, a biopic directed by Steve McQueen of IRA prisoners in the 1980's who go on a hunger strike led by Bobby Sands played by Michael Fassbender. A must see, but it is not an easy film to watch, basic human rights are taken away from the prisoners and it's horrific. There is one amazing scene, done in one take between Bobby Sands and Father Moran, Liam Cunningham. If Michael Fassbender doesn't get at least an Oscar nomination for his performance in the film, there's something wrong.

Hunger opens in limited release December 5, 2008
