Hopefully the NC-17 rating won’t discourage audiences from checking out Shame or discourage Academy voters from considering this film for year-end honors. This latest US trailer further proves why Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan are considered to be such powerful performers and are so in demand for films.
Watch the US trailer:
Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister (Carey Mulligan) moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control. From BAFTA award winning director Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.
