Winner of Cannes' Palm d'Or for best film, nominated this year for a Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film, SHOPLIFTERS is a heartwarming tale of what it means to belong to a family in one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year and the latest from Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda.
Shoplifters begins with the mischief and intrigue of a heist movie, but it's so much more. Osamu (Lily Franky), a middle-aged man, and Shota (Kairi Jyo), a young boy, walk into a grocery store. They play it cool, not speaking but, rather, signaling to each other with their hands and eyes. One provides cover while the other snatches goods. They stroll out the door with a hidden bounty before anyone notices. Osamu and Shota then find four-year-old Juri (Miyu Sasaki) freezing on a balcony and take her back to their poor but happy home. And though Osamu's wife doesn't want another mouth to feed, any plans to return Juri to her parents are given the kibosh after signs of abuse are discovered on the little girl's body. If they're not demanding a ransom, how could this be a kidnapping?
