In this Best Foreign Picture nominee, a Japanese couple and their children use shoplifting to make ends meet, but their care-free and matter-of-fact demeanor transforms into something more dramatic, however, when they take in a beleaguered young girl, and the reasons for the family's habit and their motivations come under the microscope. The Los Angeles Times writes, "This wise and insightful film is delicate, poignant and unexpectedly powerful." Admission is $3 for the public, $2 for ISU staff and free for ISU students with Bengal ID.
