Hunger is a compelling and unforgettable exploration of the real-life events surrounding the 1981 IRA hunger strike at Northern Ireland's Maze Prison. Michael Fassbender (300) is Bobby Sands, an IRA member who leads a hunger strike as a protest against Britain's refusal to recognise the IRA as political prisoners. Bold, beautiful and brutal, Hunger is a harrowing tale that follows the IRA resistance to the prison regime. 2008 Blast! Films., All Rights Reserved.
