This stunning new film by Steve McQueen follows Brandon, a young, successful thirty-something living comfortably in New York who is brought undone by his addiction to sex.
The tightly controlled rhythm of Brandon's life begins to collapse when his wayward, unruly sister, Sissy arrives for an unannounced visit. Her disruptive presence in his life propels Brandon further into New York's dark underbelly as he tries to escape her need for connection and the memories she evokes.
From the writer of The Iron Lady and the producers of The King's Speech, Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us. The film's examination of sex addiction has been extensively reported on.
