This Red-Band ‘Ingrid Goes West’ Trailer is Delightfully Crude

Ingrid Goes West stars Aubrey Plaza as a modern-day social media stalker, and this new red band trailer brings all the Bret Easton Ellis vibe.

Check it out, and be careful this is extremely NSFW:

“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.”

This looks crude and real and exciting and it looks like a movie where you will feel bad for laughing at least a handful of times. Aubrey Plaza is perfect for this, and Elizabeth Olsen is perfect in just about everything she does. Win win.

Ingrid Goes West is directed by newcomer Matt Spicer (no relation to Sean, I am certain of it), and it stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. alongside Plaza and Olsen.

It opens August 11.
