Ingrid Goes West (NC16)
Starring Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O’Shea Jackson Jr
Directed by Matt Spicer
Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza plays Ingrid, a misanthrope who doesn’t realise that just because she’s following someone on social media doesn’t make her that person’s friend.
After leaving a psychiatric facility for attacking a ‘friend’, she’s back to her old ways, this time stalking Elizabeth Olsen’s flavour-of-the-month influencer, whom she’s determined to be her BFF at all costs.
This dark dramedy is Single White Female for the Instagram generation, but it doesn’t go down the same slasher path as that 1992 movie. Still, it arrives at an ending that’s just as creepy. On CatchPlay, Google Play and iTunes. (***)
