"Shame" on Me

Seeing Steve McQueen's "Shame" tomorrow afternoon (thank you, NFL, for scheduling no games of consequence until Sunday night...), so certainly looking forward to that. With school pretty much wrapped up, it's time to play catch-up, so I'll be checking out stuff like "Beginners", "The Future", "Another Earth" and some other titles I missed this summer.
Speaking of which, for some reason, I caught up with "Sarah's Key" and was honestly not very surprised to find it a doughy history lesson that finds false uplift through tragedy by framing story around pregnant, glum Kristin Scott-Thomas. Even she can't survive its obvious shortcomings, most of which, I presume, can be traced back to Tatiana de Rosnay's 2006 bestseller.
