  • Oct 2, 2013

+1

Sophia Coppola's film is based on the true story of some jaded, amoral LA teens who stole millions of dollars worth of designer goods from celebrities they admired.  They get high, take a lot of selfies, burglarize celeb homes and then do it all again and again.  Their complete lack of remorse is disgusting and the story left me feeling very sad for our fame-obsessed society.

The ensemble cast is made of mostly newcomers and they are all convincing in fairly undemanding roles.  The story is shocking but somehow manages to be predictable and boring at times.  All in all, it's interesting but off-putting; not great cinema by any means.
