About the Movie
From Oscar award winning writer and director Sofia Coppola, THE BLING RING tells the story 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. THE BLING RING stars Emma Watson alongside incredible new talent Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, and Taissa Farmiga. The film also features Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale, and real-life Bling Ring victim, Paris Hilton. It is based on the Vanity Fair article The Suspects Wore Louboutins by Nancy Jo Sales.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: Coppola neither makes a case for her characters nor places them inside of some kind of moral or critical framework; they simply pass through the frame, listing off name brands and staring at their phones.
Rotten: All the characters are shallow and one-dimensional and, while one can argue that this is the point, it doesn't make for 90 minutes of engaging cinema.
Fresh: s Coppola offering a critique (a stated hope) or somehow being complicit? These questions seem to coil in on themselves, making The Bling Ring that weird yet common hybrid of tsk-tsking and celebration.
The Best Movie EVERRRR!!!!!
It's A Really Great Movie I Think That Sophia And The Cast Did A Really Amazing Job!!!! Israel Broussard Is My Best Friend Always Supporting You Bro Since 06 To 13 Love You!!! And Taissa
Don't trust the bad reviews.
This movie is a great reflection on the aspiration of many teens to be famous-to have more expensive clothes, to live a luxurious life, and to party like a real celebrity. And speaking as a teenager, the portrayal of these characters is accurate in my eyes. Coppola perfectly shows the extravagance of getting everything you want- legal or not- and watching it all go down the drain. A great summer movie.
I give it 2.5/5
I saw two far better movies in the same day so in comparison it just wasn't entertaining enough, but any other day it probably would seem better.
