Shoplifters. Japan, 2018, directed by Hirokazu Koreeda

In a Tokyo grocery story, the head of the Shibata family signals to his son Shota. While one runs a blocking distraction, the other appropriates goods to feed the family, waiting back in the cramped quarters of grandmother Hatsue’s house.  On their way home, they will also acquire a new member of the family, Yuri, an abused little girl left out in the cold. But the skill that supports the loving Shibatas will also prove their undoing. They are “Shoplifters.” Rated R. In Japanese with English subtitles; 120 minutes.
