A couple stuck with part-time jobs and inadequate incomes avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour. The younger and the older of the household are in on the act. The unusual routine is about to change from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic, however, as the couple open their doors to a beleaguered teenager.

“This film will steal your heart” DAVID STRATTON. THE AUSTRALIAN.

“Some of the credit must go to the stellar casting and performances. It’s difficult to single out one of the six actors in this alternative family unit as it’s a true ensemble display. But Kore-eda’s deft command of tone is a key factor too.” SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.

“At once charming and heart-wrenching, this exquisitely performed film will steal the hearts of art-house and mainstream audiences” VARIETY.

“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.” LA TIMES.
