“Shame” poster invites us into Michael Fassbender’s bed – AWARDS ALLEY
Hollywoodnews.com: Simple. Suggestive. A little misleading.
Steve McQueen’s “Shame,” which is impressing critics at the New York Film Festival this week, has a brand new teaser poster. It show’s Michael Fassbender’s rumpled bed sheets, which makes sense on the surface, as McQueen’s drama probes the psyche of a Manhattan-based sex addict.
If you’ve seen “Shame,” though, you know that Fassbender’s Brandon hardly ever has sex in his bed. An alleyway? Sure. In front of his laptop? All the time. But in a crisp, clean bed? I can’t seem to recall.
I’ll have to check it out again now that Fox Searchlight has announced a Dec. 2 release date. “Shame” plays NYFF Friday, Oct. 7, so expect the Internet to erupt with reaction and discussion in the coming hours.
