INGRID GOES WEST

Cert 15 Stars 3

Mental illness and online celebrity collide in this dark comedy of reinvention.

Always watchable and capable of wonderfully demented degrees of comic intensity, Aubrey Plaza stars as Ingrid.

She travels to Los Angeles to befriend an unwitting Instagram celebrity. Elizabeth Olsen is tremendous as the vain and vacuous object of her attnetions, Taylor Sloane.

Pool parties and cocktails lead to cocaine, kidnapping and blackmail as the over sharing  of ones life leads to negative consequences.

This is a message which is worth repeating, but in doing so the script forgets to put include sufficient laughs or heart.
