JAPANESE WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (After Life; Still Walking; Like Father, Like Son) Shoplifters is an exceptional drama about the forces holding a struggling family together. In Tokyo, the Shibatas routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet; but despite their poverty, when father Osamu (Lily Franky) and son Shota (Kairi Jyo) happen upon a little girl (Miyu Sasaki) after one of their shoplifting sessions, they take her in. A rare depiction of Japanese society’s urban underclass, Shoplifters is a rich and satisfying film, deeply affecting and full of Kore-eda’s humanism, subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry.
