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, a Los Angeles socialite named Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen).
After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of buddies, the facade begins to crack in both women’s lives — with comically malicious results in the dark comedy Ingrid Goes West.
Aubrey Plaza seems to have taken her character from Park and Recs and continually pulled from it to varying degrees. In my opinion she is at her best when she displays that underlying edge of darkness with comedic elements. It was on display in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Life After Beth and most notably in Legion. She plays the part perfectly.
