Rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes
Master Japanese film director Hirokazu Kore-eda (LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON; OUR LITTLE SISTER; AFTER THE STORM) reaffirms himself as one of the world’s best auteurs with this heartbreaking drama about a different kind of crime family.
“A tender ensemble piece whose skillful performances dovetail into a perfectly symphonic whole, SHOPLIFTERS is a work of such emotional delicacy and formal modesty that you’re barely prepared when the full force of what it’s doing suddenly knocks you sideways.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
“A sublimely subtle tale of a family on the margins… SHOPLIFTERS is a sneakily ambitious tale for Kore-eda, and feels like one of the most consequential films he’s made in a very long time.” – Emily Yoshida, Vulture
“[Kore-eda] has always been good at showing love manifest itself in surprising ways, and his ability to tell this story with a minimum of sensationalism and judgment feels like a small miracle.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
“Among the very best of the writer-director’s delicate, deceptive, and profoundly moving dramas about the forces that hold a family together (or don’t).” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire
