The Bling Ring
Directed by Sofia Coppola
Nancy Jo Sales (author of The Bling Ring) will appear after the OCT 19 screening of the film for a Q & A.
In The Bling Ring, Oscar Winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today's culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. And what starts out as youthful fun spins out of control, revealing a sobering view of our modern culture. Based on "The Suspects Wore Louboutins" by Nancy Jo Sales.
