The Bling Ring
Director: Sofia Coppola
Starring: Emma Watson,Taissa Farmiga,Israel Broussard,Katie Chang
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.
