Japan 2018.  A profoundly moving drama about an impoverished family in Tokyo reduced to petty crime. Taking in a cold, hungry little girl from the streets they live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals a secret that tests the bonds that unite them.  Impressive and subtle, the film won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2018. Running time:  121 minutes. Japanese with English subtitles.  Classification reason: strong sex references.
