Brandon is a New Yorker who shuns intimacy with women but feeds his desires with a compulsive addiction to sex. When his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, stirring memories of their shared painful past, Brandon’s insular life spirals out of control. British filmmaker and artist Steve McQueen weaves these two people’s wrenching narrative amidst picture-perfect portrayals of Manhattan. Best Actor Award at the Venice Film Festival. English spoken.

Newsreel 80 records the day-to-day life of this 81-year-old, who generously and welcomingly understands the hardships of contemporary migrants.
