Fascinating cautionary tale where Sofia Coppola again deals with the always-rich theme of emptiness, this time seen through the prism of wasted youth, both literally and figuratively. Unattended kids break in or walk into houses, try on jewelry and steal dresses while high on coke and it’s incredibly (and surprisingly) engrossing. A post-Hermione and gorgeous Emma Watson and breakthrough talent Israel Broussard absolutely shine in this glamorous, visually striking heist film, one of the finest offerings of 2013.
