Shoplifters

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (After Life; Still Walking; Like Father, Like Son) Shoplifters is a complex and exceptional drama about the forces holding a struggling family together.  In Tokyo, the poverty-stricken Shibatas family routinely turns to petty thieving to make ends meet.  After one of their shoplifting sessions, father Osamu (Lily Franky) and son Shota (Kairi Jyo) happen upon a little girl (Miyu Sasaki) and take her in.

A rare depiction of Japanese society’s urban underclass, Shoplifters is an incredibly satisfying, and exquisitely drawn film.
