Hunger follows life in the Maze Prison, Northern Ireland with an interpretation of the highly emotive events surrounding the 1981 IRA Hunger Strike, led by Bobby Sands. With an epic eye for detail, the film provides a timely exploration of what happens when body and mind are pushed to the uttermost limit.
You probably know how the film will end but here is the last 10 minutes of Hunger and do not watch if you want to spoil the climax. But this a great scene between Bobby and Ray.

Hunger is an explosive, challenging and unforgettable feature film by the multi award winning creative team of British artist film-maker Steve McQueen and Irish writer Enda Walsh. The film is a highly evocative and provocative interpretation of the true story of a man who leads a hunger strike as a political tactic in a long running battle over prison conditions. He and his fellow prisoners demand to be treated as political prisoners and not as terrorists. Their demands are refused. He stays true to his word. He dies, as do nine other prisoners after him. Six months after his death the state begins to concede to their demands. But too late for the ten dead men. This man was I.R.A. volunteer, M.P., poet and hunger striker Bobby Sands. On the 5th of May 1981 Sands was the first person to die on the hunger strike in Her Majesty s Maze prison near Belfast, Northern Ireland. After 217 days of protest and ten men dead, the hunger strike was called off by the prisoners: three days later the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, announced a number of changes in prison policy.
Over the following 2 years all the prisoners demands were granted. In 2000, the remaining political prisoners were released under the terms of the Northern Ireland Peace Process. Sands s decision to use his body as a political tool reverberates in our post 9/11 world. Hunger is a timely and compelling exploration of belief and commitment. A film about the psychology and the price of long-term imprisonment, about how political conflict can escalate until neither side can lose face or back down, abou
