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 »

feeling sorry for Mr. Brett
8 October 1999 | by (Pa.) – See all my reviews



It is a true shame that this piece of garbage was the wonderful Jeremy Brett's last film. obviously he needed money to treat the heart disease that killed him at 60 years old.Mr. Brett tries his best but with a script and direction straight out of amatuer theatricals what could he do?
