The Bling Ring

The Bling Ring

Sofia Coppola's (SomewhereLost in Translation) Cannes-nominated comedy-drama, starring Emma Watson. This is the true story of a group of fame-obsessed Los Angeles teenagers, known as The Bling Ring, who robbed the homes of Hollywood celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom and Paris Hilton - in Hilton's case several times.

The Bling Ring stole around $3 million in cash and belongings from their victims in less than twelve months and reportedly targeted more than 50 homes. As well as Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, their victims included Audrina Partridge, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox.

Always adept at directing young performers, Coppola encourages fine work here from her cast of mostly newcomers, with Watson taking special relish in shedding her goody-two-shoes "Harry Potter" persona.

Sharp and shiny as the jewellery its twisted teens pilfer, Coppola’s cautionary tale eschews action for angsting about celeb-obsessed culture.

Occupies a vertiginous middle ground between banality and transcendence, and its refusal to commit to one or the other is both a mark of integrity and a source of frustration.

There is something in Coppola's weightless, affectless portrayal of their crime spree that is very effective, and this is a film whose interest definitely grows on a second viewing.

Once the initial thrill of riding shotgun to these robberies starts to fade, the audience has little to do but wallow in amorality.

Suggests Coppola still has the nose for a good story, but not the depth to sufficiently explore it.

A film about teenagers, crime, celebrity, LA, the internet and the cinema. These still waters run very deep indeed.

Coppola's attitude toward her subject seems equivocal, uncertain... she seems far too at home in the world she depicts to offer a rewarding critique of it.

Might be a film for right now rather than the ages, but Sofia Coppola's heist movie is visually arresting, well acted, capricious fun.
