SYNOPSIS

Shame. Brandon (FASSBENDER) is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life.  After his wayward younger sister (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.

Produced by Iain Canning and Emile Sherman (THE KING’S SPEECH), SHAME will receive its world premiere, playing in competition, at the Venice International Film Festival and also feature at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
