Here’s The Trailer For This Year’s Winner of the Palme d’Or, Shoplifters!


So, in case your curious about the film that just won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes film festival, here is the trailer for Kore-eda Hirokazu’s Shoplifters.  Magnolia Pictures has obtained the rights to release this film in North America but, as far as I know, it still doesn’t have an American release date.

(If I’m wrong about the lack of a definite release deate, please feel free to correct me in the comments.)

Here’s the plot of the film, according to Wikipedia:

In Tokyo, Osamu Shibata is married to Nobuyo, who live in poverty. Osamu receives occasional employment and Nobuyo has a low-paying job, but the family relies in large part on the grandmother’s pension. Osamu takes his son Shota shoplifting for groceries, and discover a girl, Yuri, homeless. Osamu takes Yuri to their home, where the family informally adopts her. However, the Tokyo police, aware Yuri is missing, begin to search for her.

And here’s the trailer!
