International Trailer For Hirokazu Koreeda's Cannes Entry, 'Shoplifters'

For me and other fans of Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda this is a great moment in time. The filmmaker was just confirmed to be directing a new film with French icons Juliette Binoche and Catherine Deneuve, and his courtroom thriller The Third Murder will hopefully be stateside soon. But the kicker is that he's returning to Cannes with his latest family drama, Shoplifters, and we have an international trailer for it.
