Dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda / Japan 2018 121mins / With: Lily Franky, Sakura Ando

While Hirokazu Kore-eda is one of world cinema’s most consistently brilliant filmmakers, he has rarely had the same level of recognition as his contemporaries.

A Tokyo family living in poverty survive by committing petty theft to subsidise their lowincome and pension. Whilst father Osamu is shoplifting with his son, Shota, they discover Yuri, a homeless girl. When they observe evidence of abuse, the family informally adopt her Although the family is poor, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime, they seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them. “A thrilling, beautiful tale of Toyko’s down-and-outs.... This is a film that steals in and snatches your heart.” AAAAA-- The Daily Telegraph “Hirokazu Kore-eda’s audacious latest steals heart... a reflexive and devastating gem” AAAAA-- The Guardian “Combines tearjerking sentimentality with hard-hitting social comment” AAAA- The Independent “Charming, funny and very affecting” AAAA-- Time Out
