The Bling Ring trailer
The trailer for Sofia Coppola’s ‘based on true events’ turn is here.
I’ve been so excited about this Sofia Coppola movie, based on the bunch of kids who broke into celebrity homes since I heard she was writing it. The story is captivating: a group of LA youngsters trying to simultaneous be and take from the stars by busting into their gaffs and grabbing what they could.
Privacy: destroyed by social media, celebrity: built through the media, wealth: accumulated through whatever means necessary, consumerism: driven by unattainable goals set by celebrities and their media coverage – it’s an intoxicating mix.
Coppola’s last picture, ‘Somewhere’ was a stagnant, constipated look at the loneliness and pointlessness of celebrity, but this looks like a nuclear version of that, amplified by the brashness of brazen crime.
What a killer line at the end of the trailer as well: “what did Lindsay say?” Even in a police station, she still wants the goss, the access, the closeness, the exclusive.
