The retelling of France's iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. From her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen, and ultimately the fall of Versailles.
Quiet teenager Marc Hall arrives as a new student at Indian Hills High School in Agoura Hills, California. He is befriended by fame-obsessed Rebecca Ahn. While at a party at Rebecca's house, the pair check unlocked vehicles on the street, taking valuables such as cash and credit cards. When Marc mentions that one of his wealthy acquaintances is out of town, Rebecca persuades him to join her in breaking into his house. Rebecca steals a handbag, mentioning that her idol, Lindsay Lohan, has the same one. She also steals cash and the keys to a Porsche, which the pair use to flee the scene. With the cash, the two go on a shopping spree, affording themselves the luxury lifestyle they admire in magazines. Marc visits a nightclub with Rebecca and her friends Nicki Moore, Nicki's adoptive sister Sam, and Chloe Tainer, where they rub shoulders with celebrities such as Kirsten Dunst and Paris Hilton. While researching Hilton on the Internet, Marc and Rebecca realize that she will be out of town....
Director Sofia Coppola considered cutting the slow zoom-in shot of the glass house heist, but cinematographer Harris Savides convinced her to keep it in. It is now the most celebrated shot of the film. See more »
The character played by Emma Watson, while seen holding a cigarette and putting it to her lips, is quite obviously not inhaling said cigarette, revealing that she isn't actually smoking. See more »

With a name like Coppola it doesn't have to be good.
One reviewer said it was...a movie about designer clothes, jewels and accessories. Really? That's what it was about? How freaking exciting!
The Bling Ring, a theatrical rendition of The Bling Ring; A TV Movie of 2011 (because Hollywood is so hard up for new material it won't even wait a mere decade before remaking something)
I'm not sure why, exactly, but I get the strangest feeling that most of the reviews are paid for.
Well-made and surprisingly enjoyable??? Why were you surprised to enjoy something you paid to see?
A vibrant portrait of a society thats(sic) culture is so lost it's hard to decide who you hate more; wannabes or celebrities.??? I've decided that I hate lackluster filmmakers and the pretentious people who wannabe film critics.
An atmospheric, blackly comic look at celebrity obsession. WTF??? I'm not even sure what this means but it sounds like a lyric from Kurt Cobain.
Eventually finds the root of all evil, at least in the heart of teenage girls living in the suburbs of fame and fortune. Wow! I'm pretty sure there was more evil involved in spending $20 million to make this.
Well done and exciting, elegant, sexy look at some real life pretty little robbers! I'm pretty sure this was written by one of the girls who actually committed the crimes - or her publicist.
With a per theater average of $413 can any of these reviews really be accurate?
