Ingrid Thorburn is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing “likes” for meaningful relationships.
Taylor Sloane 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.
Built around a brilliantly disarming performance from Aubrey Plaza, Ingrid Goes West (winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance) is 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.
“The first half of the film — which mocks emoji and other shallow, ephemeral forms of engagement — shapes up to be a satire of contemporary communication and the fleeting nature of cultural discourse.” – WASHINGTON POST
