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
Teenage girl cat burglars... Interested yet? That's the set up of 'The Bling Ring,' Sofia Coppola's latest film (which is based on a true story) about a group of girls who decided to rip off celebrities when they know they're not home. Now there's a new clip that features 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson pole dancing.
The first poster for Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' has arrived and rather than showcase star Emma Watson, it goes for something simpler, subtler and a bit more cool than a giant floating head. Check it out below!
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.
Emma Watson has been a busy girl now that she's no longer known just as Hermione Granger. Following her stirring performance in 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' she'll be diving into Sofia Coppola's world of upscale robbery in 'The Bling Ring,' which recently debuted the first trailer.
It may be a little early to start contemplating what some of your most anticipated movies of next year will be, but one of the films you should keep your eyes out for is Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring.' Not only is the imaginative director pushing her limits but an actress from the 'Harry Potter' realm is as well.
