January 11 – 17
On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.
Dir: Kore-eda / 2018 / Japan / 121 min
“This soft-spoken, cinematic treasure about a family of thieves highlights the quietly devastating artistry of Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda. It’s impossible to experience the deep-seated compassion of this film and not be moved to tears.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“At once charming and heart-wrenching, this exquisitely performed film will steal the hearts of both art-house and mainstream audiences.” – Maggie Lee, Variety
“Every one of master Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda’s movies breaks your heart in a different way.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
