…a film by Kore-eda Hirokazu.  

“A complex, subtle, mysterious film that builds to the most extraordinary surprise ending, a twist-reveal worthy of psychological suspense noir.

Shoplifters tells a deceptively simple story that gradually reveals layers … about its characters, their pasts, their relationships, and how … we connect as people.

Sex, love, puberty and even death are all handled with a refreshing level of honesty, never letting a life lesson become a big moment, but rather another step in growing up, a true reflection on the way real life works.”
