Since the ending of Parks and Recreation, star Aubrey Plaza has struggled to find a comedy to match her comedic skills but INGRID GOES WEST may do just that. In the film, Plaza stars in the title role as a young woman who becomes obsessed with a social media celebrity who appears to have the perfect life. But when Ingrid decides to drop everything and move west to befriend the celeb, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.
Plaza has already proven her ability at playing emotionally complex characters in projects like Legion and The To Do List, but Ingrid Goes West appears to pair her acerbic and dark humor with some serious social commentary skewering. From the teaser alone we don’t see too much of the plot, but it’s enough to know I’ll be reserving a seat the moment tickets arrive.
