Details Limited Release: Jun 14, 2013; Rated: R; Genre: Drama; With: Leslie Mann and Emma Watson; Distributor: A24 Films

Harry Potter star Emma Watson trashes out in hair extensions and ''stolen'' Herve Leger for her based-on-a-true-story new role: one member of a gaggle of celebrity-crazed, brand-obsessed, reality-TV-bred L.A. teenagers busted in 2009 for lifting nearly $3 million worth of goods from the homes of starlets such as Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson. ''They were kids who just assumed they were going to be famous and have a fashion line because they thought they were fabulous,'' says director Sofia Coppola, who looked to 1970s teenage-rebellion films like Over the Edge for inspiration. ''I don't want to say they're gross, but they are products of our reality TV culture.'' Naturally, Paris Hilton makes a cameo in the film as herself.
