A group of teenagers become bored of their everyday lives while everyone around them enjoys their glitzy lifestyles in LA. In an attempt to become like the celebrities they idolise, they track down their glamorous houses online and plan robberies while working out when they are away for premieres and award ceremonies and such. Discovering a world of designer clothing, expensive jewellery, Rolex watches and wads of cash lying around becomes more than a temptation and the teenagers embark on an addictive routine raid of several celebrity homes with victims among the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan. At first they appear to be getting away with their exploits, but it isn't long before they are found out and arrested and they learn that they must face up to the consequences of their crimes.
This crime drama is based on the true story of the real Bling Ring - a group of LA teens who were arrested in 2009 for multiple burglaries of celebrity homes over a period of 10 months. It has been written and directed by the Oscar winning Sofia Coppola ('Lost in Translation', 'The Virgin Suicides', 'Marie Antoinette'). 'The Bling Ring' will hit the UK on July 5th 2013.
