Shame Film Locations

13 April 2012

Shame is a 2011 British drama film co-written and directed by Steve McQueen, starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. The film was co-produced by Film4 and See-Saw Films and has explicit sexual scenes which resulted in it being rated NC-17 in the United States. The sex scene with Michael Fassbender and Amy Hargreaves pressed against the glass of a room window in Manhattan's The Standard hotel was actually filmed above a busy street during the day. Spectators watched while the two actors, in the nude, smiled and waved at them from the hotel room above between takes. Since the Standard Hotel opened in New York in 2009, it has become notorious for its guests engaging in public sexual activity in front of their rooms' windows, sometimes for the entertainment of audiences on the street or in the High Line park below the building.

In the very last shot of the film where Brandon looks at the woman on the subway train, the subway ad of a church called The River NYC is prominently featured behind him. This is actually the church Carey Mulligan attends whenever she is in New York City.

Following the DVD release later this month, OTSONY will be posting the film locations online. The Internet Movie Database has already given reference to some of the locations used, such as the 28th Street subway station, Pier 54 and the main character’s apartment building on West 31st Street.
