Hull Independent Cinema: Shoplifters

Hirokazu Kore-eda | 2018 | Japan | Cert 15 | 121 mins | Japanese with English subtitles


The winner of this year’s top prize at Cannes, SHOPLIFTERS follows a small band of marginalized misfits struggling to make ends meet on the outskirts of Tokyo. Shoplifting to get by, they decide to secretly adopt a little girl foraging for scraps in the freezing cold – before an unforeseen incident begins to test their bond…

It’s a welcome return by the renowned Japanese director, Kore-ada (Still Walking, Like Father Like Son) who shines a spotlight on the struggling classes with his usual insight, compassion and humour. A triumph of subtlety over spectacle, Shoplifters is sure to steal your heart.
