Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Steve McQueen and Michael Fassbender are reuniting in Shame. The pair, who worked together on the incredible IRA prison movie Hunger (go watch it now), are set to do the same for McQueen's second directorial effort.

Shame tells the story of of Brandon, a 30-something who has trouble controlling his love life in New York. But this ain't no Sex and the City: co-written with Brick Lane's Abi Morgan, the aim of the film is to examine the human nature of need, and the way experiences can shape a person's life. Producer Iain Canning gets it, describing McQueen as a director who is "not afraid to turn a mirror on the world".

In short: expect something remarkable from this pair. After all, Hunger went on to nab the Camera d'Or at Canne and Venice's Gucci Prize.

Shame will be touting its business about at Toronto Film Fest this week. It starts shooting in January.
