The Bling Ring

Director Sofia Coppola's new film The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson, is based on the true story of a group of teens obsessed with fame and fortune who successfully broke into the house of celebs in the Hollywood Hills in 2008 and 2009 and stole clothing, jewelry and more. Dubbed The Bling Ring, the teens were eventually caught after they got sloppy and were caught on camera more than once busting into celeb homes and making off with thousands of dollars worth of swag.

The Bottom Line

True to style, Sofia Coppola manages to create a look and feel for this film that is dream-like, surreal, especially since the film is slow moving to start. The Bling Ring has a killer soundtrack to boot, featuring cutting edge indie artists like Sleigh Bells and Azealia Banks.

Israel Broussard convincingly brings the most relatable character to life - Marc suffers from low self confidence and gets involved with the stealing when sticky fingered Rebecca (Katy Chang) decides to adopt him as her bestie. The movie tries to stress how deluded the thieves were, and how their obsession with celebrity life and wearing all the right brands blinded them to the basic fact that stealing is wrong and that their capture was inevitable. In trying to help you to relate to the teens though, the movie falls short of truly making us think about the events in a different way, and even Emma Watson's surprising portrayal of a totally immoral teen ( a real change from bookish Hermione!) can't distract us from the fact that the slow pace and lacking dialogue makes the whole thing fall short.

The Bling Ring Movie Rating:3
