Following her Venice award-winning character study Somewhere, Sofia Coppola is back with The Bling Ring, a film that on paper seems like new territory for the Oscar-winner. While still centered on the wealthy class like Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette and Somewhere; The Bling Ring is essentially a crime caper, a genre Coppola has never mined before. The film is based on the true story of a group of rich Californian teens who decided to start a heist gang and begin robbing celebrity's houses.
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."
