Ingrid Goes West

Livin’ large in a fantasy world.

Everything Elizabeth Olsen’s Instagram influencer touches turns to gold, as she rules her corner of the internet clad in the latest fashions, dispensing pearls of wisdom.

Then Aubrey Plaza crashes into this pristine world, a stalker obsessed with tasting a bit of the gilded life and being best buds with her “celebrity” crush.

Plaza, so good on Parks and Recreation and Legion, mixes desperation with what she thinks is laid-back cool, making us root for her even as she mentally implodes.

Darkly funny, down to its ironic final scene, this definitely earns its “like.”
