Best Foreign Language Film nominee: Shoplifters at th Strand

Saturday, February 16 at 7 PM
Shoplifters 


 
Oscar nominee: Best Foreign Language Film

Shoplifters was directed by Kore-Eda and won the big prize at the 2018
Cannes Film Festival.

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.

“beautifully felt family drama,” -  Manohla Dargis, The NYTimes

“It's impossible to experience the deep-seated compassion of this film and
not be moved to tears.” Peter Travers. Rolling Stone

“Watching “Shoplifters” is understanding the pervasive power of love” -
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

“The deeply flawed heroes of Shoplifters may not always be right, but
they’re not wrong either.” Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
