Odyssey Film Club: SHOPLIFTERS
March 27 @ 19:45 - 22:00
Screen25’s Odyssey Film Club presents: SHOPLIFTERS at Harris Academy South Norwood (27 MAR 19:45).
Join us on the fourth Wednesday of every month for Odyssey Film Club, a special strand designed to shine a light on cinema from around the world.
This month we take a journey to Japan for Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Palme d’Or-winning story of an unconventional family in SHOPLIFTERS.
A poor Tokyo family living off petty crime, low paying jobs and their grandmother’s pension welcome 5 year old Yuri, a young girl who fears returning to her own family and facing more physical abuse. She finds love and comfort in her new adopted family, until an unforeseen incident upsets their delicate loving balance and their darkest secrets are exposed.
This tender portrait of a family forced to confront their past is a heart-warming tale about the importance of choosing your own bonds rather than those tied to you by blood.
