The Bling Ring Synopsis
In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills. Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as “The Bling Ring.”

In The Bling Ring, Oscar Winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. And what starts out as youthful fun spins out of control, revealing a sobering view of our modern culture.

The Best Movies Of 2013 So Far The Best Movies Of 2013 So Far
We're almost halfway through July-- I know, right?-- and just past the midway point of the year, which means that we're also almost done with summer movie season. The blockbusters are petering out, the dregs of summer are appearing on the horizon (sorry, R.I.P.D.) and the really great movies of fall feel so far away. So why not take this moment to look back over the year so far, and pick out the movies that we actually did love?

Bling Ring Teaser Shows Bad Girl Emma Watson Bling Ring Teaser Shows Bad Girl Emma Watson
Even though this teaser clocks in under the minute mark, it deftly displays a kinetic energy and clearly unveils the draw of these crafty crimes. Just imagine sauntering into the homes of the insanely wealthy and making their closets—packed with gorgeous garments, dazzling jewelry, and unfairly fabulous footwear—your own personal grab bag. It'd be a hell of a ride…at least until the cops catch on.

Emma Watson Spotted In Bling Ring Costume Emma Watson Spotted In Bling Ring Costume
The biggest star among The Bling Ring girls is Harry Potter's Emma Watson. The graceful Brit who has long played uptight bookworm Hermione Granger seems sure to shake up her image playing celeb-robber Nicki, a California girl with some curious fashion choices. These shots from the set give us a first glimpse of Watson gone L.A. party girl. In the first we see what a difference a wig makes. Watson's charming pixie cut is buried under some moody Kristen Stewart-styled locks...

Emma Watson Will Front Sofia Coppola's Bling Ring Emma Watson Will Front Sofia Coppola's Bling Ring
Personally, I'm hoping Coppola is breaking out of her comfort zone with this one, and that the sassy title The Bling Ring is a hint to a more brightly comedic offering from the ethereal auteur. Now, I'm not hoping for full-on broad comedy like Sugar & Spice, just something starker and a bit more lively. Coppola's got an incredible talent for crafting elegant cinema with her chosen ingénues, but I'm hoping The Bling Ring's reckless premise will give her a chance to try something new.
