"Can you give mommy a cue? Are you hungry?" 21-year-old Alexis Neiers cooed to her crying newborn in the middle of a faux-upscale Calabasas restaurant last week.

NEW YORK CITY - Sofia Coppola could have easily gone the studio route in choosing a distributor for her new movie, "The Bling Ring. " Instead she chose the upstart company that set loose the viral image of James Franco as a resplendently thugged-out Jesus. The Facebook posting of the actor in his "Spring Breakers" lizard-king persona, surrounded by his bikini-clad costars, director Harmony Korine and rapper Gucci Mane at a "Last Supper"-style banquet table, spread across the web in late March with a tide of 20,000 thumbs-up.
