The Bling Ring is a 2013 internationally co-produced satirical crime film written, directed and produced by Sofia Coppola. It features an ensemble cast, led by Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien. It is based on an article, "The Suspects Wore Louboutins" by Nancy Jo Sales, which dealt with a real-life gang known as the Bling Ring.
The film had its world premiere in the Un Certain Regard section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival on May 16. Distributed by A24 Films, it began a U.S. limited release on June 14, before opening in a wide release on June 21, 2013.
The Bling Ring represents the final work of cinematographer Harris Savides, who died of brain cancer while the film was in post-production. The film is dedicated to him.
