Garter Lane Arts Centre, Waterford. Tuesday 2nd April  @ 7.30 p.m

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018, Hirokazu Kore-eda’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) head the Shibatas, a family living just above the poverty line.

When Osamu and his son Shota (Kairi Jyo) take in what appear to be an abandoned little girl, Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), the seams of this brittle and unconventional family begin to unravel.

121 minutes, Japan

Shown as part of the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival on Tour.
