…New Trailer for Darkly Funny Thriller.

"NEON has released a new trailer for the upcoming dark comedy thriller Ingrid Goes West. The feature directorial debut of Matt Spicer stars Aubrey Plaza as a lonely, unstable young woman who, after fixating on "lifestyle guru" Taylor Soane's (Elizabeth Olsen) Instagram, models her social media life after Sloane's and moves to California to become her best friend. I caught the film at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (read my full review here) and it was one of the fest's biggest pleasant surprises. While the premise may sound like it gets worn out fast, Spicer keeps twisting and turning the plot in fascinating directions, and the performances from Plaza and Olsen are spectacular.

This new trailer is a solid encapsulation of what you'll find in Ingrid Goes West, and it does a great job of capturing the increasingly manic/terrifying energy that exists in the film. The movie has a clear Talented Mr. Ripley vibe but Spicer ensures this film stands on its own, especially as it relates to how it comments on the current state and use of social media. Plus, the whole cast here is great, with O'Shea Jackson Jr. delivering a scene-stealing performance as Ingrid's landlord…"

Ouch. Watched the preview and that's 2:21 of my life that I can never get back. I just hope that the saying is true: "What ever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."

I disagree, I think the dark humor could work well. I'll watch it when it netflix or HBO.
