Sundance Film Festival 2017 Reviews

Ingrid Goes West

Plot (courtesy of Sundance):

U.S.A., 2016, 97 min., color

A young woman becomes obsessed with an Instagram “influencer” and moves to Los Angeles to try and befriend her in real life.

Director: Matt Spicer

Screenwriters: Matt Spicer, David Branson Smith

Principal Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, Billy Magnussen

Review: The films about being obsessed with social media won’t stop. They will keep getting liked, shared and redone. Thankfully, a quality filmmaker, screenwriter and cast will always be able to shine a proper light on the subject and that is exactly what Ingrid Goes West is able to pull off.

Ingrid (Plaza) has just lost her mom and attaches herself on Instagram to anyone who will give her a hint of reason. »
