2019 Film Nights for your diary
9th April 2019
Shoplifters  Dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda
Winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018.
Three generations of a Japanese family live crammed together chaotically, but lovingly, in grandmother Hatsue’s small house. They are scraping a living on the margins of society, through a mix of menial jobs, supplementing their low income with shoplifting, staying under the radar of the law.
Then, one day, they take in, or kidnap, a neglected little girl, Yuri, and bring her up as their own. But the girl’s disappearance makes the news, and their lives begin to unravel. Nothing, it seems is quite as it appeared in their unconventional family.
It’s an unsentimental film about love, and about what ‘family’ should mean.
