Why do kids want to live like celebrities? There’s no definitive answer to that question, but Sofia Coppola explores the mindset of that kind of youth in “The Bling Ring.” Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival before hitting theaters this summer, you might have missed the writer/director’s take on a culture obsessed with brands and fame. And whether you’re now catching up or if you’re a fan of the movie, we’ve got a pretty great prize pack for some lucky readers.
But first, let’s recap what this movie is all about. Starring Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, Taissa Farmiga and more, the film chronicles the true story of some affluent, bored teens who start breaking into celebrity homes and using them as their own personal shopping mall. Coppola certainly captures the surreal nature of it all, and how addictive their behaviour became, until of course, it all came screeching to a halt. And below, you can check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip which touches on some of the real-life inspiration and themes that make their way into the film.
And now on to the good stuff. We’ve got a handful of prize packs featuring a poster signed by Sofia Coppola along with a copy of the DVD to give away. How do you get one?
Email us with your name and address and tell us which celebrity home you’d like to hang out in, and why. Good luck!
