The Bling Ring

A shocking and funny look at how far celebrity worship can go.

Sofia Coppola’s latest is based on an incredible true story. A group of L.A. high-school friends track the activities of celebrities online so that they can rob their homes.

A biting, stylish take on celebrity culture.
