This film is one of the few that has been rated NC-17 this year and for good reasons at that. There are a number of intense sexual scenes in the movie that would be too graphic for a Rated R flick.
By the way, the movie is all about a man troubled with sexual addiction. IMDB’s plot summary states –
In New York City, Brandon’s carefully cultivated private life — which allows him to indulge his sexual addiction — is disrupted when his sister Cissy arrives unannounced for an indefinite stay.
“Shame” is written and directed by Steve McQueen (a namesake of the late American actor). It stars Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Hannah Ware. It will open in the US on limited run starting December 2.
