The Bling Ring

Crime,Drama

Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes.

Director: Sofia Coppola

Starring: Emma Watson,Taissa Farmiga,Israel Broussard,Katie Chang

Runtime: 90

The Bling Ring recounts the true story of the privileged LA teens who break into the houses of their idols, serving a celebrity culture obsession.

A multi-faceted movie, working beautifully on two levels. Firstly an engrossing, beautifully shot, dark teen comedy full of glitz and glamour, heightened by the edgy hip-hop soundtrack.

But this is more than an upmarket teen flick; Coppola offers moral social commentary, presenting her thieves empathetically as symptoms of a culture which promotes obsession with nothing but fashion, star gossip and materialism.
