Fresh off its Oscar nomination for Best Foreign-Language Film, The Imperial Theatre will present Shoplifters by Japanese master Hirozku Kore-eda at the Imperial Theatre on February 28th at 7:30pm. This screening is part of SWIFF Selects, a new monthly series where great cinema from around the world is brought into Sarnia. Shoplifters begins with the mischief and intrigue of a heist movie, but it’s so much more. After stealing food at a supermarket, Osamu finds four-year-old Juri freezing on a balcony and takes her back to his poor but happy home. Though Osamu’s wife doesn’t want another mouth to feed, any plans to return Juri to her parents are nixed after signs of abuse are discovered on the little girl’s body. If they’re not demanding a ransom, how could this be a kidnapping? Buy tickets on their website or in-person at the Imperial Theatre box office.
