Flip and watch the second trailer for Ingrid Goes West starring Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen and O’Shea Jackson Jr…
The movie is totally like a Instagram post with some of the editing choices, but that is what makes Ingrid Goes West so interesting to see.
The movies is Instagram-a-licious!
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. 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.
We’ve already received word that O’Shea Jackson, Jr. is the scene steeler of the movie.
“The surprise breakout performance of the film comes from O’Shea Jackson Jr., the rapper son of Ice Cube, who portrayed his father in Straight Outta Compton. I imagine that Jackson will be included on casting wish-lists for years to come. His character, who plays a neighbor to Ingrid, is an aspiring screenwriter obsessed with Batman — which leads to some incredible laugh out loud moments and (maybe a slight spoiler, you’ve been warned) possibly the best sex scene of the year.” – Peter Sciretta Sundance Film Festival review
Ingrid Goes West arrives in theaters on August 11, 2017.
