Fassbender's sex addiction flick pulled from local cinemas to screen uncut


A British movie that was pulled from cinemas last year because its director refused to cut a sex scene, will now be shown uncut but in limited screenings.

Shame, a drama about sex addiction starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, will be exhibited by the Singapore Film Society this Saturday and on Feb 3.

The screenings, however, will be limited to members of the film society.

The Media Development Authority's Board Of Film Censors has given the uncut version of Shame a rating of R21, meaning only those aged 21 or older may attend.
