Shame is a film about a sex addict—played by Michael Fassbender—whose addiction and lifestyle is threatened when his sister (Carey Mulligan) comes to stay with him. Shame just received an NC-17 rating, apparently because Fassbender is full frontal throughout much of the film. Fassbender and the film’s director, Steve McQueen, have worked together before, and have just signed on to work on another film together. No, this is not the least bit romantic—addiction of any sort is not—but it looks incredible, and early reports say that Fassbender delivers a remarkable performance, and that Shame is up there with Last Tango in Paris and Midnight Cowboy in impact. It comes to the United States in early December, likely in a limited run.
