Cinematique Presents: “Shoplifters”

Jan 29, 2019

Shoplifters runs ONE DAY ONLY, Monday, March 18 at 4pm and at 7pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.

Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award Nominee.

After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces. Although the family is poor, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime, they seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them…

From the critics:

“In this beautifully felt family drama, the Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda dives into the mess with a story about a household on the ragged edge.” Manohla Dargis, The NYTimes

“Watching “Shoplifters” is understanding the pervasive power of love.”

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
