"The Bling Ring" is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed several celebrities' homes, including Paris Hilton.

The film is directed by Sofia Coppola, best known as the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, but also for her work in "Lost In Translation". "The Bling Ring" stars an ensemble cast, including newcomers Katie Chang as Rebecca, the ring leader who gets her thrills from robbing the homes of celebrities, Israel Broussard as best friend Marc, and also Emma Watson as Nicki.

"The Bling Ring" shows us what went on behind those robberies, and the motivation the teenagers had for committing these crimes. They are shallow characters who want nothing more than to be as rich and as famous as their celebrity idols. The actors did a good job of portraying the shallowness of today's fame-obsessed generation, and also Israel Broussard, who showed how one might succumb to peer pressure in order to fit in or be accepted into the "cool" crowd. Emma Watson also does a good job in portraying a deluded teenager who dreams of fame, and has no qualms about ditching her friends in times of trouble.

The movie was shot in several celebrities' homes, including Paris Hilton's, who lent her house to the director to lend an air of realism. The heiress herself also makes a cameo in the movie.

"The Bling Ring" is ultimately as shallow as its subjects. It won't provoke much response from the audience as it is a self-obsessed film with too many shots of designer goods and houses. The film also suffers from a languid pace, and often lingers far too long on each scene. Even its talented stars are unable to save the film. The film is recommended to teenagers who are brand-obsessed and want a taste of the culture of the Hollywood celebrities like the girls in the movie.
