Synopsis


A young man moves to the big city with dreams of becoming a writer.


But in this unforgiving metropolis, friends are scarce and jobs are even scarcer.


Once hunger rocks the core of his reality, how can his youthful spirit - and his sanity - survive?


Hunger is Nobel Prize winner Knut Hamsun's groundbreaking tale about a mind on the margins, and our universal yearning for connection.


Based on his own early experiences of poverty prior to becoming Norway's most celebrated novelist, Hamsun's story revolutionised the psychological novel and influenced writers from Franz Kafka to Ernest Hemingway.
