Story


"The Bling Ring" shows a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and fame who burglarized the homes of celebrities in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets' whereabouts online, the teens would break-in and steal designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naivete of youth, amplified by today's culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, the members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that nearly any teenager would find hard to resist. What starts out as youthful fun spins out of control and reveals a sobering view of our modern culture.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..lively and fascinating pic..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
“..the film is like a more expertly shot episode of a reality show, with the final product as disposable as last year's swag..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“.."The Bling Ring" occupies a vertiginous middle ground between banality and transcendence, and its refusal to commit to one or the other is both a mark of integrity and a source of frustration..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
