THE BLING RING
15, 90 mins. Opens Friday
Emma Watson, Katie Chang
Director Sofia Coppola's evocative film follows the criminal antics of the Bling Ring - a real-life band of LA hipsters. Led by Rebecca (Chang) and the amazingly shallow Nicki (Watson), they break into the houses of the rich and famous - Paris Hilton, Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan were among their real victims - to steal their clothes and luxury items.
The break-ins are atmospherically staged, and performances spot on as the thieves embrace their B-list celebrity and stalk victims online.
A vivid tale of vacuous thieves
