The Bling Ring


Director: Sofia Coppola
Screenwriter: Sofia Coppola, Nancy Jo Sales
Genre: Crime, Drama

Our recently developed obsessive need to be close to the celebrities from the movies, magazines, and reality tv, is what drives this film. Sophia Coppola (Lost in Translation) captures the essence of the teenagers’ desperation perfectly. As for the people the characters are based on, they have either declined interviews or rebutted the actuality of the film. Without a doubt, the film is based on actual news stories and arrests that have occurred over the past few years. Coppola and the actors did a beautiful job showing how the first generation has come to idolize celebs to near sociopathic obsessions. The film itself has a documentary type feel to it that keeps you plugged in. Just don’t be expecting an explosive set of events. The Bling Ring is meant to be so much more than that and is one to watch.
