1987. Denver, Co. One crazy night in the life of four friends reeling from the sudden demise of iconic British band The Smiths, while the local airwaves are hijacked by an impassioned (and armed!) Smiths fan. Inspired by true intentions....
"A loving gift to superfans of the English band The Smiths...this sweetly nostalgic look at lost boys and lonely girls feels like it comes straight from the heart." — New York Times
"This is an alternative-rock version of American Graffiti...(the) music's dramatic resonances are, moment to moment, breathtaking." — Armond White
"Shoplifters of the World" is a Poignant Love Letter to The Smiths...the film is haunted by a kind of inescapable, mournful nostalgia, as it piercingly reminds of the irreversible demise of the sort of weirdo tribalism that once so intensely bound together all those living just beyond the fringes of societal acceptance - these were indeed the songs that saved your life - and Shoplifters of the World rightly and properly celebrates them." — BlackBook
