Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Oscar award winning writer and director Sofia Coppola's new film The Bling Ring tells the story, based on actual events, of a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and celebrity that burglarize celebrities' homes in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets' whereabouts online, they break-in and steal their designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth and the mistakes we all make when young, amplified by today's culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, we see through the members of the 'Bling Ring' temptations that almost any teenager would feel. What starts out as teenage fun spins out of control and leaves us with a sobering view of our culture today.
The film, set to premier in NY and LA on June 14th and nationwide June 21st, stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga and Leslie Mann, as well as newcomers Israel Broussard, Katie Chang and Georgia Rock.
