First Images From Steve McQueen’s Shame, Starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan
When Hunger was released in 2008, it violently grabbed my attention and has remained one of my favorite films of the last few years. Steve McQueen and Michael Fassbender together generate the sort of synergy rarely seen between an actor and director. So I was extremely happy when I it was announced they’d be working together again on a film named Shamed, also costarring Carey Mulligan. Finally, we have some stills from the film, and while they don’t show us much, it’s enough to whet my appetite. Click on the photos below for a larger view.
Brandon is a thirty-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon?s world spirals out of control. From 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. Stars Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie.
