A critically-acclaimed portrait of a family in Japan, Shoplifters, released on DVD and Blu-ray 25th March 2019 from Thunderbird Releasing, is the 2018 Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or-winning film from visionary director Kore-eda Hirokazu (Nobody Knows, After the Storm).
After another successful shoplifting spree, Osamu (Lily Franky, Like Father, Like Son) and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold and invite her home with them. Osamu's wife Nobuyo reluctantly agrees to shelter her after learning of the hardships she faces.
Although the family is poor, relying on petty crime alongside their part-time jobs and inadequate incomes, they seem to live happily together - until an unforeseen incident upsets the delicate balance the family have created, revealing long-buried secrets.
