As an actor, Fassbender does an exceptional job with the main character. His personality is withdrawn, introverted, and in a constant state of inner pain. It's very difficult for him to show true emotion but when he does the transition is amazing. I just wish the movie had provided more background information as to what happened to Fassbender's character when we was younger to make him engage in such destructive behavior because that might have enabled me to appreciate the story more. As it was, I understood why Fassbender did what he did, but it was still very awkward to see it play out on film. It was if I were watching the inner workings of someone's very messed up private life when they really didn't want anyone to know what was going on. But maybe that was the intention of the director.
Overall, I'm not sure I would recommend this movie for the story itself but Michael Fassbender's acting is wonderful.
serve to be an eye opener about the life altering and life changing effects of abuse (sexual, physical and mental) Contrary to
what many people might believe, survivors of abuse don't always end up as the stereotypical prostitute or drug abuser. Many manage to lead successful lives on the outside but inside are harboring years of shame, condemnation, and guilt along with
an array of other emotions and behaviors. No, the movie didn't spell out that these two siblings were abused but they surely were. Even if the sister had not spoken that cryptic sentence about their past, the signs were all there. I was engrossed in the characters' lives and found myself wondering if a part two would see Brandon's addiction culminating to a pivotal juncture where he might seek treatment thereby facing his past and trying to heal his wounds. Would his sister travel along that path with him or try to commit suicide yet again? Would she succeed the next time? Maybe they both would fail, but I would sure like to see them try.
