Slowly but surely, Sofia Coppola carved out an unexpected niche with her filmography—stylishly cataloging the troubles and travails of bored and disaffected rich white folks. While Lick the Star and The Virgin Suicides were aimed at middle class culture, Lost in Translation featured the woes of a bored and desperate Hollywood movie star and the wife of a successful photographer, Marie Antoinette featured the woes of a bored and desperate queen and her king, and Somewhere featured the woes of a bored and desperate Hollywood movie star and his daughter. Beginning to see a pattern? So it comes as no surprise that the trailer for her newest film, The Bling Ring, features the woes of Hollywood movie stars as they are robbed by a band of teens.
Based on the true story of a group of teens who robbed the homes of celebs like Paris Hilton (who also cameos), Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson from 2008 to 2009, The Bling Ring follows the kids (Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga, Katie Chang, and Claire Julien) as they stalk, rob, shop, spend and party. Yep, sounds like a Sofia Coppola flick. Dig the teaser:
/Film notes The Bling Ring is being sold as “a sobering view of our modern culture”; you can decide that for yourself when the film is released June 14.
