Movie Review of Ingrid Goes West - An #AllTooReal Depiction of Generation Me

Movie Review by Kelly A. Byrne

A week ago, my buddy who works in comedy took me to see a movie I knew almost nothing about. It was getting great reviews, so in I went, blind as a bat, to see Ingrid Goes West starring Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olson, Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen. Directed by Matt Spicer. What a time it was. 

A quick logline;  A young woman, Ingrid, who has just suffered the loss of her mother moves west to Los Angeles to pursue and befriend an Instagram model who lives the “perfect” life. Anyone who has interacted with social media knows the fraudulent nature of it. It’s the sliver of life that everyone wants you to see – even strangers. When Ingrid can no longer make life work for herself at home, she takes the $60K her mother left her and travels to the land of perfect Instagrams and model living: Venice Beach, California. Ingrid Goes West was an expert satire and commentary on the way the under-30 generation is addicted to technology and social media; how they love the semblance of living a certain way, but cannot truly commit to or claim any single style or habit because they are always onto the next thing. The movie is a genius mockery of and serious warning to those trying to impress the masses through exploiting pop-lifestyle, as well as the lemmings who follow.
