Sofia Coppola's darkly comedic take on this outrageous true story opens September 6!
"This is a funny, sarky, bang-on portrayal of the freakiness of celeb obsession. The story would sound outrageous - if it wasn't true."
- Cath Clark, Time Out
"Daring to face these often noxious, seemingly empty phenomena on aesthetic terms, and taking on a degree of their flatness and simplicity, Coppola renders them surprisingly substantial."
- Richard Brody, New Yorker
"The film's best moments demonstrate just how skilled [Coppola's] become at conveying material longing, even when such yearnings have reached the realm of the perverse."
- Tomas Hachard, NPR
From Oscar award winning writer and director Sofia Coppola, THE BLING RING tells the story, based on actual events, of a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and celebrity that burglarize celebrities’ homes in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets' whereabouts online, they break-in and steal their designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth and the mistakes we all make when young, amplified by today's culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, we see through the members of the ‘Bling Ring’ temptations that almost any teenager would feel. What starts out as teenage fun spins out of control and leaves us with a sobering view of our culture today.
Based on the celebrated Vanity Fair article The Suspects Wore Louboutins by Nancy Jo Sales.
