About the Movie
Driven by a brilliant and ferocious performance by Michael Fassbender, Shame tells the riveting story of Brandon; a handsome New York businessman with a dark and destructive secret. His solitary existence is shaken by the unexpected arrival of his sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan, An Education), another damaged soul who brings memories of a painful shared past. Graphic, highly provocative and undeniably powerful, Shame is a devastating and thought-provoking cinematic experience.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Few filmmakers have plumbed the soul-churning depths of sexual addiction as fearlessly as British director Steve McQueen has in Shame.
Rotten: The film's numb attitude assumes that Brandon's problem is beyond reach or rescue. So why are we watching, except for high-tone misery and something close to pornography?
Fresh: [Fassbender is] so good as a man completely lost to his baser impulses that it makes "Shame" worth sitting through. Enjoying? That's a relative term. But you'll certainly appreciate it.
Fresh: [A] graphic and spontaneous portrait of a spiraling sex addict.
Holy crap, this movie was just amazing...
excellent movie. but looks like HD unavailable huh?
Shame is sexually addictive to audiences as well as the characters themselves. McQueen created a masterpiece in truly one of the best films I have seen this year.
