Summary

Summary

The Shibata’s, are an unconventional Japanese family of five who regularly steal, lie and con. The mother Nobuyo (Ando Sakura), father Osamu (Franky Lily), granny (Kirin Kiki), son Shota (Jyo Kairi) and daughter Aki (Matsuoka Mayu) all live in one cramped apartment. They find a young girl on the streets and take her in, only to discover she is being searched for by the police, meaning more lies must be cast to keep up their facade. Written and directed by Hirokazu Koreeda. ~ Kyle Lavigne, Rovi
