Remember Single White Female starring Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh? Well, Jason Leigh has nothing on Aubrey Plaza. Plaza ups the crazy and obsession factor in the comedy, Ingrid Goes West. It’s the 1992 thriller with a comedic Instagram twist.
Following the death of her mother and a series of self-inflicted setbacks, young Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) escapes a humdrum existence by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession and LA socialite Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen). After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of friends, the façade begins to crack in both women’s lives — with comically malicious results. Things quickly go from #BFF to #WTF.
The film also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Billy Magnussen. Neon, which acquired the film at Sundance, releases the comedy on August 11. Check out the trailer below which features plenty of moments of Magnussen flaunting his rock hard abs.
