In her last two movies, director Sofia Coppola has focused her attention on characters living inside bubbles of privilege, where the invisible magic of wealth and power makes wishes come true.
“The Bling Ring,” her new feature, continues in this vein from a somewhat different perspective. It is not about the paralysis of having more than you could possibly want, but rather about the addictive thrills of wanting what you can't quite have.
