Shoplifters (15)

Director Hirokazu Koreeda. Japanese Crime/Drama


Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018, this delivered the biggest ever UK opening for a Hirokazu Kore-eda (After Life; Still Walking; Like Father, Like Son) film. This is a complex, moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together. In Tokyo, poverty-stricken family the Shibatas routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. A rare depiction of Japanese society’s urban underclass, Shoplifters is an incredibly satisfying film, exquisitely drawn and full of Kore-eda’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry. Winner Palme D’Or Cannes Film Festival 2018 This film is F-Rated

Starring Kirin Kiki, Lily Franky, Moemi Katayama


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Very well received!

Incredible film. Wonderful. Amazing film choice. A lovely film. Excellent venue and beautiful film.

A film buffs' film - fairly difficult to follow - but carefully observed and shot following the (very) complicated lives of a Japanese family on the fringes of society.
