2013, 90 mins., written and directed by Sofia Coppola.
Based on actual events, this film follows five Southern California teens–four girls and one boy–who are obsessed with celebrity and luxury brand goods. Rebecca (played by Katie Chang) and Marc (played by Israel Broussard) track celebrities’ whereabouts online, and brazenly break into their homes and make off with clothes, jewelry, and shoes. Look for Emma Watson as one of the teens in the ring. Satirical depiction of shallow, spoiled, and privileged teens hits home. View the record for Bling Ring.
