It's a dream come true and a thrill ride for the group ‐ especially when they become famous for their outrageous crime spree.
Making The Bling Ring
Review:The Bling Ring is so much more than a simple storyline; Sofia Coppola has made this event a stunning and thrilling production.
Based on true events, the film showcases the absolute absurdity of the events however the depth within the story is sufficiently explored by Coppola which enables us to be intertwined with the characters rather than the celebrities.
The Bling Ring is a drama with substance; the film is determined and once you look past the shallow and superficial storyline you can see a film laced with values; let this be a lesson learned.
