The Bling Ring stars Emma Watson as Nicki, in one of our favourite performances of hers to date.  Her shallow and vapid character is based on Alexis Neiers, who was a C-list star who had her own E! reality show ‘Pretty Wild’ in the days BK – Before Kardashian- and was a precursor to the Kardashian format (YouTube it if you want to witness some jaw dropping quotes – particularly the home schooling episode).

Surrounding and following Nicki from the nightclubs to the Beverly Hills Mansions are her posse (with strong performances from Katie Chang as Rebecca and the up and coming star Israel Broussard as Marc) and you watch with wonder at the sense of entitlement and lack of redeeming features that this fame obsessed group of individuals have.  As is Coppola’s style, she simply observes and does not preach to her audience and throughout, the look and feel of the film and the soundtrack is super cool and makes for an intriguing watch.  Look out for the scenes shot inside Paris Hilton’s actual house, which is, from floor to ceiling, Narcissistic pop-culture fabulousity to the extreme!

The Bling Ring is out now on DVD, blu-ray and digital download.
