Ingrid Goes West (15)
USA/2017/98mins/15. Dir: Matt Spicer. With: Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O’Shea Jackson Jr.
Ingrid Thorburn is an obsessive app addict, with a history of confusing attention on social media for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane is an Instagram-famous "influencer" whose perfectly curated 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. With a brilliantly disarming performance from Aubrey Plaza this a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn't all it's cracked up to be.
