In an era where teenagers worship celebs’ online rants, it’s rather timely that Sofia Coppola would open her newest flick, The Bling Ring, with a quote from loquacious tweeter, Nicole Richie. While there’s no word on which of Richie’s zingers sets the scene, the move’s an interesting one for the indie director best known for stylized cinematography and lethargic pacing.
Starring Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga and Leslie Mann, Bling profiles a group of teens that pilfered nearly $3 million worth of jewelry, cash and designer clothing from celebrities including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson in 2008 and 2009. And though we’ll have to wait until next year to solve this pressing mystery, there are plenty of other engaging film plots to be born from Ms. Richie’s endless stream of consciousness.
Without further ado, our favorites:
