Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.
The film depicts the story of the real-life “Bling Ring” – a group of kids from an affluent neighborhood in the valley that continually robbed the Hollywood homes of wealthy celebrities for almost a year before finally being caught. The cast includes Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, and Taissa Farmiga. The film also features Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale, and real-life victim, Paris Hilton. It is based on the Vanity Fair article “The Suspects Wore Louboutins by Nancy Jo Sales.”
Shot in some of the real homes of the celebrity victims, the film is an entertaining heist picture that also says so much about today’s culture.
