THE BLING RING is an upcoming crime/drama film based on true events. Directed and written by Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, Somewhere), it stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and Leslie Mann, as well as newcomers Israel Broussard and Katie Chang.
Film shows a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and fame who burglarized the homes of celebrities in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets’ whereabouts online, the teens would break-in and steal designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth, amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, the members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that nearly any teenager would find hard to resist. What starts out as youthful fun spins out of control and reveals a sobering view of our modern culture.
