Tiny Moments of Joy: Shoplifters

I do things on the weekend now, I guess, instead of working. This weekend it was another movie: Shoplifters.

It’s a really good movie, but you don’t need me to tell you that; it’s already won a bunch of awards. More interesting for me is that the last time I tried to watch a foreign movie with Swedish subtitles—I don’t know how many years ago anymore, but several—I gave up about ten minutes into the movie and switched the subtitles to English. It was just too much to process at once. This time it was fine. Progress!
