On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family. An exquisitely crafted, superbly acted, and customarily heartfelt new film from Hirokazu Kore-eda (After Life, After the Storm), Shoplifters was awarded the 2018 Cannes Palme d’Or and has been shortlisted for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
