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

User Reviews

Nooooo ...
14 April 2004 | by didi-5See all my reviews

A totally lamentable mess of a film, 'starring' the untalented Liz Hurley in a plot which was something to do with drugs. I think.

What really got me about this turkey was the calibre of the actors who were somehow persuaded to appear in it: Joss Ackland! Claire Bloom! Jeremy Brett, for god's sake (in his final film appearance as he died soon after). Alan Freeman (no, wait, he probably belongs here as an overaged daft DJ).

The worst thing about it is that you remember certain bits of awfulness for ages and ages afterwards. Trust me, you really don't want to see Ackland in sexy scenes. You don't. And that bit with Hurley and Brett is just sooo pathetic. Tut.

Avoid this load of rubbish at all costs.
