Quantcast
"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

Due September 17:

photo for The Bling Ring In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers embark on a 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.” Director 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. Based on Nancy Jo Sales’ Vanity Fair article “The Suspects Wore Louboutins.” Extras: “Behind the Bling” making-of featurette, “Scene of the Crime with Paris Hilton” featurette, “Tabloid Culture: A Master Class Featuring Nancy Jo Sales” (who wrote the Vanity Fair article “The Suspects Wore Louboutins”) featurette, theatrical trailer. Vitals: Director: Sofia Coppola. Stars: Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, Georgia Rock, Gavin Rossdale, Paris Hilton. 2012, CC, MPAA rating: R, 90 min., Drama, Box office gross: $5.458 million, Lionsgate. 2 stars
