A 2018 Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or-winner and a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee, Shoplifters is a moving, impeccably crafted family drama from one of the supreme masters of the form: acclaimed Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Still WalkingAfter the Storm). 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. A nuanced, Ozu-esque return to form for Japan’s foremost observer of contemporary family life, Shoplifters finds Kore-eda in his element and at the height of his powers. In the words of the LA Times’ Kenneth Turan, Shoplifters is “another triumph…this wise and insightful film is delicate, poignant and unexpectedly powerful.”
