INGRID GOES WEST is a comedy-drama film directed by Matt Spicer and written by Spicer and David Branson Smith. It stars Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen. The film premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.
Following the death of her mother and a series of self-inflicted setbacks, young Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza) escapes a humdrum existence by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession and LA socialite Taylor Sloane (Olsen). 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.
