Shoplifters* 2018 Japan (subtitles) 120 mins
21st February 2020
On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.
Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda the film competed at the Cannes Film Festival where it won the prestigious Palme d'Or and was Oscar nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
