Maleny Film Society Presents – Shoplifters

April 6 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm

General Admission

Doors Open 6 pm for Optional Sit-Down Dinner
Movie Starts at 7:15 pm

Winner of the 2018 Cannes Palme d’Or and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, whose Like Father, Like Son and After the Storm, have been screened here.  Again he demonstrates insight into family relationships.  In this case the family—children and adults—eke out a meagre living by shoplifting. Among other things, the film is a social realist perspective on the underside of affluent modern Japan.  When the family takes in a girl who seems to have been abused and abandoned, complications arise. We learn that the bonds holding this family together are not biological; these are people who have sought out each to gain the benefits that family life provides. Full of humour, charm, and finely-observed detail, the film avoids sentimentality as it proceeds to a surprising and deeply moving conclusion.
