‘The Bling Ring’ features an ensemble cast, including Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Claire Julien, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Georgia Rock and Gavin Rossdale.

The film follows the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, where a group of teenagers take a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree. The group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online and subsequently stole more than $3 million in luxury goods from their homes. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson.
‘The Bling Ring’ shows how youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce audiences to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. What starts out as youthful fun spins out of control, and reveals a sobering view of modern American culture.
