Ingrid Thorburn is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing "likes" for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane is an Instagram-famous "influencer" whose perfectly curated, boho-chic lifestyle becomes Ingrid's latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star's life, their relationship quickly goes from #BFF to #WTF.
My initial expectation was for a "dark comedy," but after the first few minutes, I began to get an uneasy feeling that the plot was going to proceed in a sad and quite depressing manner. My feelings were proved to be correct, and at the conclusion of the film, I left with tears in my eyes. I don't think that result is what the director and writers had in mind. By the way, I have two daughters of approximately the same age as Ms. Plaza, and I would never want either of them to share the same experiences as depicted, nor would I find any humor in most of those experiences. Sadly dark, but sad, sad, sad, nonetheless.
