Sofia Coppola ('Marie Antoinette,' 'Lost in Translation') returns with a new movie about a real-life group of privileged LA teens who invaded the homes of celebrities to steal their clothing and jewelry. Unfortunately, 'The Bling Ring' is as vacant as the homes these kids pillage.

It wasn't until around 40 minutes into 'The Bling Ring' when I realized that, in no way, was this movie supposed to be "fun" or even "enjoyable." That's when I let down my guard, one that had instinctively risen as soon as I encountered the film's despicable characters. And that's when I realized this movie was a little bit brilliant.
Unlike 'Spring Breakers,' which butters you up with ebullience before crashing your mellow with its frenzied social commentary, 'The Bling Ring' is a dark and surprisingly plain-spoken peek at vapid and defiantly unlikable people. Once you break past the wall of resistance – a reasonable response might be to just up and leave the theater after 20 minutes – something of a transformation occurs. As an anthropological work, Sofia Coppola's true-crime tale of high school bandits stealing the designer shoes and gaudy jewelry of the TMZ crowd, is actually a remarkable, albeit dark and depressing affair. It is a challenging work and a unique film.

If there will ever be a textbook titled "How to Keep Your Career Alive and Well After Starring in the Harry Potter Series,' Emma Watson will probably be the one to write it. After being a highlight in the wonderful 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' the former Hermione Granger will soon be seen in Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring.' You can check out some new photos from the film below.

Sofia Coppola has a definitive eye for casting memorable leading ladies, from Scarlett Johansson in ‘Lost in Translation’ to Elle Fanning in the meditative ‘Somewhere.’ So while this next bit of casting news gives me pause, I guess we’ll have to trust Coppola’s track record and prepare to be surprised.
