Picture from The Bling Ring

There is more than one way to reach your life's goals, and for a group of celebrity stalkers (Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga, Katie Chang) the easiest way to look like the stars they admired was to break into their homes and rob their clothes, jewelry and anything else that tickled their fancy. This movie is based on the real life actions of The Bling Ring.
