THE BLING RING (MA 15+)

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIES -

89 MIN It prom­ises much, this mod­ern story of Hol­ly­wood teens who broke into the home of celebri­ties, tried on their clothes and recorded their crim­i­nal­ity by tak­ing self­ies on their phones. They steal the odd Birkin but their mo­tive wasn’t money, it was glam­our and thrills. Sofia Cop­pola dives head­first into the fe­male self-ob­sessed zeit­geist, but it’s a shal­low dip. It’s more a mon­tage of scenes set to mu­sic than a film yet it ex­erts a strange fas­ci­na­tion.
