Brandon (Michael Fassbender, Inglorious Basterds, Hunger, A Dangerous Method) is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister (Carey Mulligan, An Education, Wall St. 2) moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control.
From 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.
