Hirokazu Koreeda 2018 121 mins 15 crime drama
Excellently scripted and full of impressive subtleties, Shoplifters is a harrowing look at a working-class family in Tokyo, in the business of trying to simply make ends meet day by day. At first glance this may seem like just a story of this family resorting to petty crime, but as the plot gradually unfolds the reasons for the behaviour and decisions of each character is revealed, and al the dots begin to connect amidst this struggle.
A big hit with the critics. Nominated for 1 Oscar. Another 21 wins & 64 nominations including Palme d’Or at Cannes.
