'Shame' on Blu-ray

Posted Tue Feb 28, 2012 at 08:00 AM PST by

The most controversial and provocative film of 2011 comes to Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be releasing 'Shame' on Blu-ray on April 17.

From visionary director Steve McQueen, one of the most talked about films of 2011 'Shame' has captivated viewers through its haunting depiction of the life of a sex addict and his emotionally troubled sister. Evocative performances from Golden Globe® nominee Michael Fassbender and Academy Award® nominee Carrie Mulligan make 'Shame' the must-have release of the year.

Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a New Yorker who shuns intimacy with women but feeds his desires with a compulsive addiction to sex. When his wayward younger sister (Carey Mulligan) moves into his apartment and stirs up memories of their shared painful past, Brandon’s insular life spirals out of control.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Focus on Michael Fassbender, Director Steve McQueen, The Story of Shame, A Shared Vision, Fox Movie Channel Presents: In Character With Michael Fassbender, and a theatrical trailer.

The release will also include a DVD and digital copy.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
