How does one tackle such a taboo subject matter as sex addiction without coming off as exploitative? Apparently Steve McQueen has the answer, and considering all the praise his most recent film Shame has gotten, the critics seem to agree. Shame, a story about a man suffering from sex addiction whose world is disturbed by the arrival of his estranged struggling artist sister, Sissy (Carey Mulligan), reunites McQueen with Michael Fassbender, whom he worked with in 2008’s Hunger.
Shame (2011) - directed by Steve McQueen. Starring Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan and James Badge Dale.
