Shoplifters (15)

Director Hirokazu Kore-eda. Japanese Crime/Drama

This is a complex, moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together. In Tokyo, poverty-stricken family the Shibatas routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. A rare depiction of Japanese society’s urban underclass, exquisitely drawn and full of Kore-eda’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry. Winner Palme D’Or Cannes Film Festival 2018

Starring Kirin Kiki, Lily Franky, Moemi Katayama
