Shame Trailer. Steve McQueen‘s Shame (2011) international movie trailer stars Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale, Amy Hargreaves, and Elizabeth Masucci. Shame‘s plot synopsis: “Shame centers around a New Yorker named Brandon (Fassbender) who avoids intimacy but is compulsively addicted to sex. When his troubled younger sister (Mulligan) comes to stay with him in his apartment, he finds his orderly life disrupted by her presence and reminders of their unhappy past.”
I saw a brief clip for this film months ago and instantly became intrigued by the film. Now the international movie trailer has been released and I like what I see and more importantly what I do not see.
More on the film:
Though it is, by all accounts, a powerful character-driven drama, it’s gained some notoriety for reports of its rather explicit portrayals of “male and female full-frontal nudity, graphic depictions of straight/gay/threeway sex, masturb*tion, urin*tion,” and more.
Fox Searchlight picked up the NC-17 Shame during the Toronto Film Festival.
The drama marks Fassbender’s second time working with McQueen, who previously directed him in the acclaimed Hunger [which we reviewed here: Hunger (2008) Movie Review].
Shame also stars Hannah Ware, Nicole Beharie, Lucy Walters, Briana Marin, Anna Rose Hopkins, Alexandra Vino, Charisse Bellante, Jake Richard Siciliano, Alex Manette, and Robert Montano.
