Ingrid Goes West stars the titular lady (played by Dirty Grandpa‘s Aubrey Plaza), and the billing states she’s a mentally disturbed young woman, but that didn’t come across in the trailer since she plays her usual kooky character. However, she becomes obsessed with Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), a social media star who appears to have the perfect life.
However, when Ingrid decides to drop everything and move west to befriend Taylor, her behaviour turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.
This trailer looks exactly what you expect, and looks like it’ll deliver as a film, even though it’s brief. I love the way this teaser pans out, too, andi it’s easily one of my favourite teaser/trailers so far this year!
Ingrid Goes West is released in the US on August 4th, but as of yet there’s no UK date.
