Ingrid Goes West is a kind of long pamphlet against social networks. Like a current Black Mirror, it is calibrated to speak to younger generations. Starting with the main character of Ingrid who is a transposition of today’s youth. Yet, beyond her addiction, she is a character whose pathological madness is felt. She is a psychiatric patient. Instagram is the consequence of his obsessions and not the other way around.
The film begins with a scene where the heroine decides to rot the wedding of her “best friend”. She is then sent directly to psychiatry for treatment that she will not complete correctly. Forcibly, his pathology will take over and we will follow step by step the wheels that will lead into the meanders of fascination.
