Sofia Coppola has a talent for creating cinematic moments that live on long after the credits have rolled.
From The Virgin Suicides to Lost in Translation, there is a sinister beauty to the worlds that Coppola explores in film.
ELLE caught up with the Bling Ring director in Cannes...
Why did you choose Emma Watson for this film?
When I met her I was impressed and thought she had a smart approach to the character. It's interesting to see an actor transform.
The visual style of the film is very distinctive...
I wanted to make the style of the movie fit the story - glitzy and obnoxious and fast paced and loud.
Do you think there's a dark side to all your films?
I hope there is. Life would be boring if there was no dark side.
Why are women still a minority in the film industry?
I think there more and more women making films and going to film school and I'm glad.
The Bling Ring is in cinemas 5 July
