The Bling Ring
DIRECTOR: SOFIA COPPOLA
CAST: EMMA WATSON, KATIE CHANG, TAISSA FARMIGA
Coppola, whose filmography might be described as an extended study in the tones and textures of privilege, made one of her best and least-understood films with this cool, deadpan, and totally hypnotic based-on-a-true story work, following the larcenous larks of a group of ultra-materialistic southern California teens who get their kicks snatching haute couture from the homes of celebrities, a game that goes so deep that the players seem to actually believe that they’ve become friends with rip-off victims Orlando Bloom and Paris Hilton.
