"Shoplifters" is competing for best foreign language film in this year's Academy Awards to be held on Sunday, Feb. 24.

"Winner of the Protected content Film Festival’s Palme d’Or and Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in Protected content , Shoplifters—about a Japanese family of small-time crooks—has garnered nearly unanimous rave reviews. After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu (Lily Franky) and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant, Osamu’s wife agrees to help after learning of the hardships the girl has faced. Although the family makes barely enough money to survive, they stay happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets."

I suggest you buy your ticket beforehand.
