Shoplifters (15)

Thu 9th May 2019
Players Theatre, Hurstpierpoint, BN6 9pu

The winner of this year’s top prize at Cannes, SHOPLIFTERS follows a small band of marginalised misfits struggling to make ends meet on the outskirts of Tokyo. Shoplifting to get by, they decide to secretly adopt a little girl they find foraging for scraps in the freezing cold – before an unforeseen incident begins to test their bond…

It’s a welcome return by the renowned Japanese director, Kore-ada (Still Walking, Our Little Sister) who shines a spotlight on the struggling classes with his usual insight, compassion and humour.

A triumph of subtlety over spectacle, Shoplifters is sure to steal your heart.
