Panel Discussion of Love Addiction as portrayed in the movie SHAME.
7:30pm at the Aero Theater
followed by a 1-hour panel discussion with:
Anonymous sex addicts from ’S’ 12-Step Programs.
Brandon (a superb Michael Fassbender) is a quietly affable Wall Street type living in Manhattan who carries the private burden of a consuming sex addiction. When his younger sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan, never better) arrives at his apartment unannounced and in need of a place to stay, Brandon finds his world of controlled secrecy thrown into crisis. Director Steve McQueen’s beautifully elegiac portrait of a man battling his demons was nominated for numerous critics awards, and was an official selection of the Venice, Toronto and New York film festivals in 2011.
