Summer International Film Festival: Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018)(R)

Tuesday June 4, 2019
2:00 PM until 4:00 PM

Prolific Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda's latest film is a nuanced, heartbreaking look at a family of misfits living on the margins of contemporary Tokyo.  Making a life for themselves by shoplifting from local grocery stores and foraging food where they can, the family find their impoverished but tranquil life threatened when they take a young girl under their wing, and her abusive parents fight back for custody.  An impassioned plea for those struggling to stay afloat, this is a must-see from one of international cinema's greatest filmmakers.  Shoplifters was nominated for the 2018 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.  In Japanese with English subtitles.  Directed by Hirokazu Koreeda. Starring Lily Franky, Sakura Ando, and Kirin Kiki.
