THE BLING RING (MA 15+)
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.
