Heres a clip of Carey Mulligan singing a slowed down version of New York, New York as Sissy in a scene taken from her new film Shame.

The film also stars Michael Fassbender as Mulligan’s brother Brandon , James Badge Dale as Brandon’s boss, Nicole Beharie, Hannah Ware, Elizabeth Masucci and is directed by Steve McQueen

Mulligan told Digital Spy: “The plan for that was always to sing live, not dub, and sing in one take. We did about 15 takes because there were takes where I was so nervous – you could hear my voice shaking – so they were useless.

“We just worked our way into the feel of it, but then if I ran out of breath we had to scrap that take. [Director Steve McQueen] never wanted to touch any of it in post-production.

“It was great for this part because she’s not a great singer, I’m not a great singer. It was more about her ability to hold a room and the message she was trying to convey to her brother. It’s so job specific, I’m not a singer! It was a fun experiment and one of the reasons why this role was so challenging.”


Brandon is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control. From director Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.

Shame is released in UK cinemas today (January 13)
