Michael Fassbender needs to start making his bed or look into hiring a cleaning lady. The first poster for Steven McQueen’s excellent Hunger follow-up Shame has been released by Fox Searchlight and in a simple image, it tells you everything you need to know. In the drama, Fassbender’s character is a sex addict and as one could guess, this bed plays a big role.
Searchlight recently set a release date for the sure-to-be NC-17 film, so look for a trailer soon and read our TIFF review as well. Shame also stars Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie, and you can see this teaser poster below via THR.
Brandon is a 30-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.
Shame hits limited theaters on December 2nd, 2011.
