Director Kore-Eda Hirokazu’s new film Shoplifters, is a subtle and moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together. Osamu (Lily Franky), his wife Nobuyu (Sakura Andô) and grandma Hatsue (Kirin Kiki) are the Shibatas, a family living just above the poverty line. When they take in what appears to be an abandoned little girl, this brittle and unconventional family unravels. Shoplifters is a brilliant and nuanced moral inquiry. Tender, compassionate but also enduringly humorous, Kore-Eda unfolds a drama which is profoundly moving. In the process conspicuously revealing a Japan rarely seen.
