Shoplifters ★★★½

AFI Fest - Film #9

Shoplifters was very rewarding. The kid performances were great and the story was interesting enough to where it didn’t feel rehashed. Maybe there were elements of Ôshima’s Shônen / Boy, but overall, it was very different. 

Vegan alert:
People are shown fishing and using littler fish and worms for bait is discussed.
