We’re always down for anything Aubrey Plaza does, and her new project, Ingrid Goes West, looks particularly bonkers.
Here’s the synopsis:
Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza) is a mentally unstable young woman who becomes obsessed with social media influencer Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) seemingly perfect life. After Ingrid moves to LA she soon becomes obsessed wth finding and befriending Taylor and that’s when things take a dangerous turn.
Check out the new trailer below:
Ingrid Goes West looks to be an original and enthralling black comedy that, along with a totally crazy narrative, analyses our society’s obsession with social media and its place in determining our self-worth.
Both Plaza and Olsen turn in amazing performances with their respective characaters, and the film’s California setting leads to plenty of beautiful shots.
Ingrid Goes West will be released on August 5.
