Press: Elizabeth Olsen and Aubrey Plaza Discuss Insta-Obsession in ‘Ingrid Goes West’

WWD – The actresses, who star as a loner and a fashion blogger in the dark comedy, discuss their relationship with social media and each other.

 

 

As the stars of the dark and quirky Sundance hit “Ingrid Goes West,” Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen — who frequently inhabit opposite ends of the character spectrum — play out a comedic, cutting-edge take on the modern social phenomenon of Insta-envy and Insta-aspiration. Adrift in her life, loner Ingrid (Plaza) takes her obsession with the picture-perfect images from the feed of social media-savvy Taylor (Olsen) to a disturbing, sometimes funny, extreme.

 

Indeed, the pair may inspire career-coveting among their peers: along with appearing together in the critically praised indie comedy, each has an equally lauded film hitting theaters — Olsen as an out-of-her-depth FBI investigator in the bleak drama “Wind River,” and Plaza as a foul-mouthed 14th-century nun in the farce “The Little Hours.” And of course, they both have superhero blockbusters on their résumés: Olsen plays “The Avengers’” Scarlet Witch and Plaza is one face of the malevolent Shadow King on the X-Men spin-off “Legion.”

 

During their chat with WWD, the pair were thick as thieves while musing about their friendship, their mutual envies and the women they admire.

 

WWD: How soon after signing on to this did you guys start following each other on Instagram?

 

Elizabeth Olsen: I didn’t have an Instagram, and you didn’t either. Well, apparently, you did.

 

Aubrey Plaza: I did. I had a private one. No, I didn’t have a public one.

 

E.O.: She never invited me or told me about it!

 

A.P.: Come on. Don’t do this. I never post on it.

 

E.O.: You post a lot of stories on it.

Press: Elizabeth Olsen does double duty in ‘Wind River’ and ‘Ingrid Goes West’

 

LA TIMES – Room 64 at the Chateau Marmont is possibly the most Instagrammable spot in L.A. Its wrap-around terrace is suspended just below the homes built into the Hollywood Hills, tiny glass boxes that form their own constellation when night falls. Rumor has it Howard Hughes once lived in this two-bedroom penthouse, spying on girls at the pool below, decades before Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga crashed here for a slumber party.

 

Today, however, it is home to the actress Elizabeth Olsen, who has arrived at the hotel with a team of people to help beautify her. High-heeled sandals are lined up on a desk. There are multiple pieces of luggage containing makeup kits. She is wearing borrowed diamonds on her fingers, paging through the room service menu, from which she can order whatever she would like.

 

It’s a scene, no doubt, that would incite lust among her half-a-million Instagram followers. But she doesn’t feel like she knows how to do the setting justice. Just this morning, she attempted to photograph her breakfast, but then ended up deleting the image in haste.

 

“I’m bad at it,” she says. “I’m bad at the lighting. I’m bad at the framing. I’m bad at the editing. When I look at my food, it looks pretty. When I look at it on a phone, it looks not pretty.”

See Aubrey Plaza Stalk Instagram Obsession in ‘Ingrid Goes West’

 

ROLLING STONE – Social media stalking turns into full-blown stalking in the comedy Ingrid Goes West. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as Ingrid Thorburn, an oddball who becomes obsessed with Elizabeth Olsen’s character Taylor Sloane.

In the new trailer, Thorburn closely follows Instagram influencer Sloane’s Instagram posts. Thorburn soon begins to shape her own life around the hashtag-slinging, selfie-loving Sloane, to the point that Thorburn moves to California to be closer to Sloane.

 

Thorburn goes so far as to kidnap Sloane’s dog as a means to befriend her (it works), dyes her hair blonde like Sloane’s and even adopts her laugh. Her wacky ploy seems to be working as the two become friends, until Sloane’s brother (portrayed by Billy Magnussen) catches on to Thorburn’s ruse.

 

While the plot seems pretty creepy on paper, in the clip Plaza and Olsen’s hilarious and punchy deliveries keep things primarily light and even strangely endearing. “I’m not a psychopath,” Thorburn insists. “I just want to be her friend.”

 

Directed by Matt Spicer, who co-wrote Ingrid Goes West with David Branson Smith, the film won the 2017 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance Film Festival. Ingrid Goes West opens in theaters on August 11th.

Aubrey Plaza Loses Her Mind in ‘Ingrid Goes West’ Trailer

 

VARIETY – Aubrey Plaza goes insane in a raucous red-band trailer for the dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West,” which shows her crashing a wedding and pepper-spraying the bride, played by Elizabeth Olsen, for not inviting her.

 

The trailer depicts Plaza’s character Ingrid Thornberg reacting to her mother’s death and a series of self-inflicted setbacks by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession Taylor Sloane (played by Olsen). After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of friends, the facade begins to crack in both women’s lives.

 

“Ingrid Goes West” is directed by Matt Spicer and written by Spicer and David Branson Smith. The film, which also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen, premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

 

Variety‘s Peter Debruge praised Plaza’s performance in his Sundance review: “A semi-ironic, yet still-empathetic ‘Single White Female’ for the Facebook generation, Spicer’s squirm-inducing directorial debut understands both the pleasures and frustrations of judging one’s worth via virtual connections. If positioned correctly, it’s the sort of timely satire that could click with younger audiences — and further bolster Aubrey Plaza’s value in the title role.”

 

Producers are Jared Ian Goldman, Tim White, Trevor White, Adam Mirels, Robert Mirels, and Plaza. Neon picked up the rights at Sundance and has set an Aug. 4 release.
