International Film Screening: Shoplifters (Japan, 2018)
December 6 at 7:00pm, C105
Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, foreign language Oscar-nominee, and a box office hit across Asia, Shoplifters is an irresistible blend of tear-jerking Family Melodrama and journalistic social commentary. A day laborer, his wife, her sister, a Grandmother, and a young boy survive together below the poverty line in Tokyo, often through petty crime. When they take in a terrified girl, abandoned by abusive parents, unwanted scrutiny soon reveals painful truths about their ‘family’.
