"Shame" goes to Fox Searchlight

Fox Searchlight has had such a strong way of picking up exactly the right titles recently. "The Tree of Life", which I liked quite a bit, but not ecstatically so, was such a strong vote of confidence that seems to be paying off to some degree. They've also got "Martha Marcy May Marlene" coming up in October, which I may be significantly more positive to. Now they've picked up Steve McQueen's likely NC-17 second feature "Shame", which is probably the more favorable outcome of the kinda-sorta bidding war over the film. It also puts chances strongly in the corner of the film getting a release sometime this year, so it's nice that we won't have to wait too long for it.
