“SHOPLIFTERS presents a mighty story of connection, lost dreams, found homes and forced hope in an intimate package.” – Allyson Johnson, Cambridge Day

“The rap against Kore-eda is that sometimes he can get a little sappy, but the nature of this story brings with it an undercurrent of darkness that tempers the director’s more winsome tendencies.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“From a purely cinematic perspective, it’ll be easy for most to gain an appreciation for all that SHOPLIFTERS hopes to achieve.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…SHOPLIFTERS is held up by the strength of its ensemble and Kore-eda’s gifts as a storyteller, which gain with every movie he makes—even in the same year.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
