Acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda’s movie, Shoplifters, has a newly-released international trailer for those wanting a deeper glimpse of the film. As there are no subtitles available yet, below is a synopsis of the story.


Shoplifters, Kore-eda’s latest project, and one that’s highly anticipated at this year’s upcoming Cannes Film Festival, is the story of a poor family that scrapes by through stealing for a living. They take in a girl who was living on the streets and who quickly becomes like family to them. They then come to find that she’s at the center of a nationwide missing person’s case, and have to make the choice of their lives.

The film’s cast includes Lily Franky, Sakura Ando, Kirin Kiki , Kengo Kora, Sosuke Ikematsu, Chizuru Ikewaki, Yuki Yamada, Yoko Moriguchi, and Akira Emoto.

Although there is no U.S. distribution set for the film as of yet, that will likely change after Cannes.
