Brandon is a thirty-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. When his wayward younger sister, Sisi, moves into his apartment, Brandon's world soon spirals out of control. From director Steve McQueen (director of the award-winning, Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us. Nominated for the Golden Lion at Venice 2011, where Fassbender scooped the Volpi Cup for Best Actor.
