Japanese Cinema, Yesterday and Today
Shoplifters (2018) 121 minutes by Hirokazu Kore-eda
Introduction and commentary by Linda DeLibero, director, Program in Film & Media Studies, Johns Hopkins University
Shoplifters - In this beautifully observed tale, a family of petty thieves living on the margins of contemporary Tokyo takes in an abandoned child. What ensues over the following year is by turns wryly funny and deeply moving, a chronicle of human connection, love and loss.
