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. 'Ingrid Goes West' 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.

Satire and thriller which doesn't quite work - Ingrid Goes West review by JR

Spoiler Alert

There are two parts to this film, one satirizes the 'perfect' lives people show on Instagram, and the other is a dark stalker thriller along the lines of 'Single White female', which is actually mentioned in the film. But the two sit very uncomfortably together. The satire is not particularly funny because it satirizes the same thing over and over again. Taylor is a superficial butterfly who uses people and curates her life for public view on Instagram. Ingrid is an obsessed stalker who will stop at nothing to insinuate herself into Taylor's life, even murder. She is devious, manipulative and devoid of any compassion; but the film seems to somewhat excuse Ingrid by saying it's all because of these people flaunting the lie of a perfect life on the web. The cast is strong, but the screenplay is problematic and fudges the ending.

Dark fun - Ingrid Goes West review by PC

Spoiler Alert

This may not be as satirical as it wants to be but it does have something to say about celebrity and the dangers of placing your life on the internet for everyone to see. Aubrey Plaza is great as the title character and shows that her great turn in Legion is no one off.

Dark humour rules - Ingrid Goes West review by TE

Spoiler Alert

This is a well worked, dark satire on contemporary neuroses about social media, celebrity and loneliness.

It is both funny (in dark ways) and tragic in its portrayal of delusional image addiction.

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen are excellent.

The ending is particularly bleak, despite its apparent sugar coating.
