Ingrid Goes West

Drama/Comedy; Rated NR;  2017 97m. 

Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing “likes” for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) is an Instagram-famous “influencer” whose perfectly curated, boho-chic lifestyle becomes Ingrid’s latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, their relationship quickly goes from #BFF to #WTF.


“Its double-barrel satire is aimed both at those who curate their lives through merrily sun-dappled photos, and their followers, who drink it in as reality.” – Sara Stewart, NEW YORK POST


“The film works effectively on its own terms as a new variation on a timeless subgenre, and as a warning to people who share their lives freely online.” – Matt Singer, SCREEN CRUSH


“Ms. Plaza delivers a wide-ranging, nuanced and demanding performance as a mad woman, whose attic is the cellphone.” – John Anderson, WALL STREET JOURNAL
