The first trailer for writer/director Sofia Coppola’s upcoming crime drama The Bling Ring has been released. The film is based on true events and centers around a group of fame-obsessed California teenagers who used social media to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to burglarize their homes. The group were accused of stealing over $3 million in clothes and jewelry from celebrities including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom between 2008 – 2009.
Coppola has a talent for creating compelling female characters and I don’t think this will be any different. Between this and Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, audiences will get a different look at teenage girls this year… and leave parents absolutely terrified.
The cast includes Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien and Leslie Mann.
