  • The Bling Ring

    2013. USA. Directed by Sofia Coppola. With Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang. Coppola's film, based on the Vanity Fair article "The Suspect Wore Louboutins," by Nancy Jo Sales, follows a posse of bored, entitled, and drugged-out Los Angeles teens as they break into the homes of their fave celebrities in order to steal designer handbags and shoes. These fabulous acquisitions feed the teens' pitiable need to wear the same labels as peculiar heroes like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. The last film completed by the late cinematographer Harris Savides, The Bling Ring is alive with striking sunsets and palm-tree vistas that shadow these young intruders as they rifle through closets filled with Vuittons and Chanels. Coppola's evenhanded treatment makes no judgments, but builds a compelling case for a misquided generation hooked on selfies and celebrity. Courtesy of A24 Films. 90 min.
