Wed 20 March: 2:30pm Thurs 21 March: 8:30pm
Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe.
A family of small-time crooks take in a child they find outside in the cold.
On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders is united by fierce loyalty and a penchant for petty theft. After shoplifting from a store, Osamu and his son run into a little girl shivering with cold. At first, Osamu’s wife is not keen to take her in, but eventually feels sorry for her and lets her stay. Despite their tenuous, below-the-radar existence, the family is happy until secrets are exposed that put their bond to the test.
Japanese drama from Hirokazu Koreeda (After The Storm, I Wish), starring Lily Franky, Sakura Andô and Kirin Kiki.
Please note – there are often no adverts shown before Fringe screenings, particularly before the evening shows, so please make sure you are seated by the advertised start time of each film.
