Director Kore-eda Hirokazu won the Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival for Shoplifters, about a financially struggling family reduced to stealing to survive. Shoplifters went on to become a mainstream commercial hit in its home country, but also found itself in the midst of controversy for its frank depiction of poverty amidst a society that has long turned a blind eye to the plight of its poorest citizens. In Japanese with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
