I've had a mild obsession with the "Bling Ring," a merry band of teenaged robbers, ever since I read Nancy Jo Sales's incredible profile about them back in 2010. (If you haven't seen the video of head Ringer, Alexis Neiers, scream-crying into the phone as she leaves Sales a hysterical voicemail, you should probably go do that right now.) When I heard Sofia Coppola was making a movie about these very privileged, very rich, very bored teenagers, I whooped with glee. How could you not love a story where one of the thieves, so confident she won’t get caught, sets aside enough time in the middle of a robbery to take a dump in Rachel Bilson's bathroom?
