October 2 Kick-off Event: THE BLING RING (2013) Written and directed by Sofia Coppola Sponsored by The Brockton Agency, Inc.
Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes. Oscar Winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naiveté 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.
