Emma Watson in The Bling Ring, inspired by actual events: teens rob celebrities' homes.Emma Watson in The Bling Ring, "inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes."
"The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola's acerbically arresting fifth feature, is a tasty contradiction: a clear-eyed, empathetic look at people the movie doesn't even pretend you can like. It's a true-life drama of American youth culture gone mad. "
—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The Bling Ring is a sly, often hilarious and at times sobering look at the 21st century fascination with celebrities — whether they’ve actually done something, or
they’re shallow ninnies famous for being famous." —Richard Roeper, Chicago-Sun Times
"Hollywood has been reiterating Bonnie and Clyde-ism — making doomed romantic heroes of dirtbags — for half a century, but 'The Bling Ring' plays off the 1967 film much as 'GoodFellas' rebutted 'The Godfather': Real criminals are less about Shakespeare than Elmore Leonard."
—Kyle Smith, New York Post
