Japanese movie Shoplifters (万引き家族), in Pittsburgh from December 21.

The 2018 Japanese movie and Palme d'Or winner Shoplifters (万引き家族) will play at the Regent Square Theater in Pittsburgh from December 21.
After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold.

At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces.

Although the family is poor, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime, they seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them...
When Shoplifters was relased in Japan in June it was the country's highest-grossing movie its first three weekends. It opens on December 21 in Regent Square, and showtime information is now available online (tickets must be purchased at the theater door). The Manor Theater in Squirrel Hill has cancelled its planned screenings.
