This week in theaters we have the horror sequel "Annabelle: Creation", which provided a genuine surprise because it's actually pretty good, the biopic "The Glass Castle" starring Oscar winner Brie Larson, and the animated sequel "The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature". In limited release, an interesting pick is the dramedy "Ingrid Goes West" starring Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen.

Synopses, details, critical reception, trailers, clips and more after the jump.

Ingrid Goes West Movie Image

Official Synopsis

Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing "likes" for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) 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. Built around a brilliantly disarming performance from Aubrey Plaza, Ingrid Goes West (winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance) is a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn't all it's cracked up to be.
