Ocean’s 8 is a 2018 American heist comedy film co-written and directed by Gary Ross. The film is both a sequel and a spin-off from Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy and features an ensemble cast, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina. The film follows a group of women led by Debbie Ocean, the sister of Danny Ocean, who plan a sophisticated heist at New York City’s annual Met Gala.
Ocean’s 8 was released by Warner Bros. Pictures in the United States on June 8, 2018, 11 years to the day of the release of Ocean’s Thirteen. The film has grossed $296.8 million worldwide and received a lukewarm critical response, with praise for the performances of the cast (particularly Bullock, Blanchett, and Hathaway), but criticism for the storyline.
Danny Ocean’s younger sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock) has spent the last five years in prison, and her infamous brother Danny has recently died.
The first thing she does upon being released from prison is go to a department store in New York City and pinch several items after pretending that she was there to return them. She then stays at a hotel after pretending to be part of a couple that just checked out.
Debbie reunites with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett), to convince her to join a heist that she planned while serving her sentence.
Debbie lets Lou in on a new scheme of hers that she needs Lou’s help on. They take a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art where the upcoming Met Gala is about to be held. The plan is to steal a valuable diamond Cartier necklace, the Toussaint, which is worth $150 million. Debbie wants to use snobby socialite Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) as the mule so she can wear it to the Met Gala where it can be taken. First, Debbie needs to assemble the rest of their team:
Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter), a disgraced fashion designer, Amita (Mindy Kaling), an Indian jewelry maker who works and lives with her mother, Nine Ball/Leslie (Rihanna), a talented hacker, Constance Wong (Awkwafina), a loudmouthed street hustler and pickpocket, Tammy (Sarah Paulson), a suburban mom and profiteer.
The women meet at Lou’s loft where Debbie divulges the plan to the ladies and how they plan to infiltrate the Met Gala in order to secure the necklace, and so that each of them will have $16.5 million within three weeks.
Will they succeed in accomplishing the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala?
