THE BLING RING
At first it was all a game: A gang of teen girls breaks in to celebrity homes in the Hollywood Hills when their owners are gone. Marc is new in town and lets Rebecca draft him into the gang, where everything's a big joke and a game, a voracious daze between glittery luxury items, pulsing nightclubs and wild parties. The cops are not amused, however. As the heists grow more daring and dangerous, disaster looms. Sofia Coppola's panoply of spoiled and self-centered Beverly Hills youth is based on real events.
