The Oscar buzz for Shame, and Michael Fassbender’s performance, is growing to a deafening din. Shame opens in select theaters on Friday. It could suffer, Oscar- and viewing-wise, because it’s got an NC-17 rating (Fassbender is full frontal).
“We’re not bad people; we just come from a bad place.”
Fassbender plays a sex addict, while Carey Mulligan appears as Fassbender’s “wayward sister” who comes to visit him in New York (and is also full frontal). If you have the chance, will you see it?
