Plot: New York sex addict Brandon has successfully kept his private life hidden. But when his troubled younger sister shows up, she turns his carefully constructed world upside down.
After George Clooney’s…..endorsement of Michael Fassbender at the Golden Globes, women all over the world are probably queuing up to see Shame. Fassbender is indeed an anatomically blessed man, but there is nothing sexy about his nudity or anything else in this film. It’s a story of depression, addiction and emotional detachment – not exactly the stuff of erotic fantasy (for most people, anyway).
