Coppola's caper, based on a true story, follows a group of high school friends who burgle the homes of the rich and famous, spurred by their obsession with celebrity.
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.
