This stunning new film by Steve McQueen (Hunger) follows Brandon (Michael
Fassbender, Hunger, Inglorious Basterds, A Dangerous Method), a young,
successful thirty-something living comfortably in New York who is brought undone
by his addiction to sex. The tightly controlled rhythm of Brandon's life begins to
collapse when his wayward, unruly sister, Sissy (Carey Mulligan, An Education,
Never Let Me Go, Drive), arrives for an unannounced visit. Her disruptive presence
in his life propels Brandon further into New York's dark underbelly as he tries to
escape her need for connection and the memories she evokes.
From the writer of The Iron Lady and the producers of The King's Speech, Shame is
a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives
and the experiences that shape us. © 2011 New Amsterdam Film Limited, Channel Four Television Corporation and the British Film Institute
