Ingrid Goes West
Opens Sep 8, 2017
Aubrey Plaza (The Little Hours) and Elizabeth Olsen (Wind River) co-star in this wonderfully deranged dark comedy. Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza) is a social media stalker with a dangerous tendency to misread “likes” and overstep boundaries. Taylor Sloane (Olsen) is an Instagram star who’s attracted millions of followers by posting a steady stream of images documenting her boho-chic lifestyle. Ingrid becomes obsessed with Taylor and decides to move to Los Angeles to befriend her. O’Shea Jackson, Jr. co-stars as Ingrid’s Batman-obsessed landlord.
“A daring comedy with a very sharp bite. Plaza’s understanding of the character’s inner abyss is extraordinary. Her real gift is in making Ingrid both hilarious and tragic.” (Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com)
