Celebrity Culture Under Scrutiny in First Trailer for ‘The Bling Ring’
Not just a crass 2-hours spent knee-deep in celebrity and excess, Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring’s spot at Cannes Film Festival means that we expect something quite special. It has all of the female coming-of-age elements of your typical Coppola movie, but this one has a cynical and sarcastic attitude towards its characters. It’s also loosely based on a true story, giving the story an edge only supported by the victims’ cameos.
Starring Emma Watson at the top of a cast of smaller names, the film hits theaters on June 14th.
