The Bling Ring


blingringFollowing themes from her earlier films Marie Antoinette (2006) and Somewhere (2010), director Sofia Coppola was inspired by the 2008-2009 “Bling Ring” burglaries where Hollywood homes of the rich and famous, including Paris Hilton, were targeted by starstruck teenagers. While just as shallow in its depiction of emptiness in a world of celebrity idolatry as those movies, this one is more fun to watch thanks to a sense of humor, a very effective soundtrack and game performances by the young cast. Still, we’re not exactly encouraged to understand the mindset of these kids.
