Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, Billy Magnussen
Comedy drama co-written and directed by Matt Spicer, the story centers on Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) a mentally unstable young woman who becomes obsessed with Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), a social media “influencer” with a seemingly-perfect life in Los Angeles.
Following the death of her mother and a series of self-inflicted setbacks Ingrid decides to drop everything and move to the West Coast to befriend Taylor in real life, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous. 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.
