The 2018 American heist comedy film Ocean’s Eight, also called Ocean’s 8, was directed by Gary Ross and written by Ross and Olivia Milch. The movie stars an ensemble cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter.
It is both a sequel and a spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy. The movie centres on a group of ladies who organize a clever heist during the annual Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City under the direction of Debbie Ocean, Danny Ocean’s sister.
Yet, an all-female spin-off was revealed in October 2015, and by August 2016, most of the cast had joined. From October 2016 to March 2017, Manhattan was the location for filming. The movie made $297 million worldwide and garnered generally favorable reviews from critics, who commended the performing cast in particular.

Ocean 8 Plot
Debbie intends to take the Toussaint, a $150 million Cartier necklace, from the Met Gala host, Daphne Kluger. The team persuades Daphne to hire Rose and Cartier to lend her the Toussaint. Rose and Amita scan the necklace at Cartier to make a cubic zirconia copy.
Nine Ball tries to hide the necklace from the museum’s surveillance cameras. Tammy gets a temporary coordinator job at Vogue and access to the gala’s seating arrangement, and Lou is hired as a dietician. At the same time, Debbie convinces Daphne to bring art dealer Claude Becker, whose betrayal drove Debbie to prison, as her date. Debbie tells Lou that her revenge on Becker will not affect their strategy.
Nine Ball asks her younger sister Veronica to assist her to in making a copy of the Toussaint after Rose discovers Cartier’s security detail’s magnet can only unclasp it. Lou spikes Daphne’s soup during the gala. Constance steals the necklace from Amita, who breaks it into smaller pieces while the male Cartier guards wait outside, and Daphne vomits into a toilet.
Daphne returns with the necklace missing, sealing the museum and searching for guests. Tammy “finds” the duplicate jewelry, ending it. Constance gives the team Toussaint pieces to smuggle out, and Debbie puts one on Becker. After the heist, Daphne joins the ladies, admitting that she predicted the robbery from their activities. She requests the eighth portion for their release.

Daphne sends Frazier a photo of Debbie’s diamond after visiting Becker. Debbie gets elderly socialites to sell Toussaint pieces and deposit the money into Becker’s account to frame him. Becker arrested.
As the eight celebrate their success, Lou reveals the heist’s actual target: while the gala was evacuated, she and The Amazing Yen, Danny’s acrobat, replaced a Metropolitan Museum of Art display of royal jewels loaned by European royal families with replicas assembled by Amita, escaping with more valuable gems than the Toussaint.
