Synopsis: Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.

Release Date:  June 14, 2013

Thoughts: Sofia Coppola had a nice hat trick of films in the last decade with The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation (with a screenplay that won her an Oscar) and Marie Antoinette.  Then she stumbled a bit with the jumbled Somewhere so it’s anyone’s guess where The Bling Ring will wind up.  I must admit the inspired by a true story angle piques my curiosity, especially because Coppola seems so observant when examining relationships between the notable and not quite noticed.  Emma Watson made a great post Harry Potter choice with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, let’s see if she continues knowing how to pick good projects.
