Synopsis

“At once charming and heart-wrenching, this exquisitely performed film will steal the hearts of both art-house and mainstream audiences.” –Variety

Winner of Cannes’ top prize, the Palme d’Or, Shoplifters centers on an unconventional Japanese family of miscreants who take in an abandoned five-year-old girl they name Juri. Despite their strained circumstances, the tight-knit unit of petty thieves and social outsiders comes together around the girl—until an unforeseen incident shatters the life they have built together. From the great Japanese filmmaker comes another devastating and humanist film about people living on the margins.
