Shoptlifters (15)

(Manbiki Kazoku)

Playing at The Theatre

Mon 21st January

In Japanese with English subtitles

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018, 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 and son Shota happen upon a little girl 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 that will challenge stereotypes and win hearts in equal measure.
