Sofia Coppola Explores the Culture of Fame With Her New Film in Cannes

Sofia Coppola studies the fascination that people feel towards fame in her latest film "The Bling Ring" that is set in Los Angeles, a city that, as Coppola implies in her film, is the epicentre of the culture of fame. Based on a real story, the movie tells the tale of a group of teenagers whose idolization of materialism drives them to break into the houses of celebrities and steal their belongings. The director claimed that the aspects of fame reflected in the film were not familiar to her, but that she felt like telling the story from the teenagers', who are the film's protagonists, point of view.
