(Japan, 2018, 121 minutes)

On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.

SHOPLIFTERS is both the winner of the Palme D’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and Japan’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards.

More dates for Winter 2019: February 2, 9, 16, 23.
