Directed and co-written by Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a remarkable examination of the nature of need and is a raw and realistic look at how we live our lives, which has today finally sees the arrival of its first trailer.
Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) plays a sex addict living in New York City whose ordered lifestyle of one-night stands spirals out of control with the unexpected arrival of his needy sister, played by Carey Mulligan (Drive), for an indefinite stay.
Fassbender starred in McQueen’s debut feature Hunger as well, so hopefully this will be as much of an excellent piece of filmmaking too.
Shame premiered at the 68th Venice Film Festival earlier this year and is set to be released on 2nd December. The trailer can be seen here.
