Shoplifters: Stolen Hearts 

The subject of some of the best critical reviews of the past year, Shoplifters became the first Japanese Palme d'Or winner in more than two decades at the Cannes Film Festival.

You will not soon forget the dignity or the mystery of Shoplifters, a sure-bet Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Film set to open in Boise on Friday, Jan. 18. It is already the biggest domestic box office hit for Director/Writer Hirokazu Koreeda (After Life), and it examines poverty and the underclass in Japan, a topic heretofore largely ignored by that nation's mainstream entertainment industry. The subject of some of the best critical reviews of the past year, Shoplifters became the first Japanese Palme d'Or winner in more than two decades at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

At the heart of Shoplifters is a family, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime. Yet its member seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them. Don't miss it.
