Columbia Film Society: SHOPLIFTERS
SHOPLIFTERS (Metacritic Reviews & Trailer)
October 18 & 19, 2019
In its quiet, achingly tenderhearted way, Shoplifters, winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, is a heresy. It suggests that we’re born into families of strangers (or worse) and that we find our true families, the people who genuinely care for us, among strangers we meet in the world. Shoplifters presents a clan of con artists as a force for love.
It’s in theory the worst family movie of 2018—and in practice one of the year’s best films. Another triumph for the great writer-director Hirokazu Koreeda. (Boston Globe) (in Japanese) (121 minutes).
