Aubrey Plaza makes a helluva entrance in the first red band trailer for "Ingrid Goes West," a dark indie comedy that takes a satirical swipe at the social-media-obsessed generation.
Plaza plays a mentally troubled young woman named Ingrid, whose insatiable hunger for social media fame prompts her to travel to Los Angeles where she makes a calculating effort to befriend a prominent online "influencer," played by Elizabeth Olsen (aka Scarlet Witch from the Marvel movies).
The film, which is the feature directorial debut of director/co-writer Matt Spicer, also stars O'Shea Jackson Jr., Pom Klementieff, Billy Magnussen, Wyatt Russell, and Meredith Hagner.
"Ingrid Goes West," which premiered at Sundance this year, will open in theaters on August 4th.
Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza), a mentally disturbed young woman, becomes obsessed with Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), a social media star who appears to have the perfect life. But when Ingrid decides to drop everything and move west to befriend Taylor, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.
