Storyline

High society, high times, and no end in sight. Shameless is an emotionally charged story about heroin, high living and the dramatic power of love as the last chance for survival. In the tradition of Leaving Las Vegas, Antonia begins a slow descent into the self-destructive world of heroin addiction, when she meets Mike, in a chance encounter. At first she merely uses Mike to run errands to get the drugs she desperately needs. But after a night of passion, Antonia begins to fall in love and Mike knows he must use all of his resources to help Antonia overcome her habit soon or... it may kill her. Written by B. Butler

Trivia

Although Tim Sewell is credited with writing the screenplay from an original story by director 'Cole, Henry', shortly before the start of principal photography, Cole himself rewrote some sections of the script to bring out the British upper-class eccentricity which he felt was missing. See more »

The Worst Film of all time ?
16 August 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This film is worth seeing simply for its monumental crapness. In the first half an hour alone countless unsympathetic characters are introduced, some of whom proceed to perform random and inexplicable actions throughout. The plot is so disjointed and badly conceived, it requires considerable effort to maintain any idea of what's going on. Not that there's any reason to do so. Instead, viewers should marvel at some appallingly bad dialogue, a staggeringly inept piece of acting from Liz Hurley, and one of the most incomprehensible plotlines I've ever come across in a film. Worth watching, simply because it is SO bad.
