Events - Upcoming - TIFF Treasures presents: "Shoplifters"

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year 2019!

A Japanese couple stuck with part-time jobs and hence inadequate incomes avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour. The younger and the older of the household are in on the act. The unusual routine is about to change from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic, however, as the couple open their doors to a beleaguered young girl. The reasons for the family's habit and their motivations come under the microscope.

Beer, wine and soft drinks along with popcorn will be available for purchase. The Gibson Cafe will be open for lunch at 11:30am.
