Aurey Plaza’s new movie, Ingrid Goes West dropped its official trailer last week, and Street's pretty damn excited. Plaza plays Ingrid Thorborn, a mentally unstable woman who becomes obsessed with Instagram star Taylor Sloane (played by Elizabeth Olsen), who in turn, is obsessed with maintaining her social media reputation that her life is perfect. Overcome with her fixation, Ingrid decides to move out west to California to try to befriend Sloane. What comes next seems like it’s going to be hilarious in the most raucous and twisted way.

The movie was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival this past January, and is now scheduled to come to theaters on August 4th. While we’re bummed that we’re going to have to wait the entire summer to see this absurd story in theaters, here’s what we’re most excited about:

    

1. Aubrey Plaza, finally standing in the spotlight as the main character in a movie (which she actually signed on as a producer for).    

2. Aubrey Plaza, finally standing in the spotlight as a main character that has most certainly lost her marbles.

3. Aubrey Plaza, finally standing in the spotlight as a main character that has most certainly lost her marbles, and who will personify the dark side that the social media experience breeds within everyone who uses it.

Look out for Neon’s new film, coming to at the end of the summer.
