A devastating portrait of male sex addiction, featuring an incredible lead performance from the great British actor Michael Fassbender ( Jane Eyre, Fish Tank). He plays Brandon, an upwardly mobile New Yorker being slowly driven crazy by urges he can no longer control. The impact on his ability to form relationships, perform his job and even hold a single clean thought in his head is rendered clearly and powerfully throughout. A serious, legitimately provocative work. Directed by Steve McQueen ( 12 Years a Slave). Co- stars Carey Mulligan.
