A dark comedy about how people's obsession of being 'liked' on social media can spiral out of control. A cautionary tale perhaps?

In this time of the world where many friends are 'online' it does give this a real time feeling. People stalked 'famous' people previously but now they have a electronic method. After all how did the Kardashian's become so well known and yet not liked as well. That social network takes away the personal aspect and makes more people feel lonelier.

Wasn't to bad of a movie kind of slow and boring at times!

I liked this as a creepy, cringe-y dark comedy. What I didn't like so much was the "social commentary" aspect, which I suspect the filmmakers thought was important but for me just fell flat. Still worth a watch.

An interesting commentary on making friends in the world of social media obsessed people.

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen are really good in this quirky, funny, dark movie.

Painful to watch, and didn't make fun of the current Instagram culture like I'd hoped.

I couldn't stop watching even though it's an average movie. Chick flick--
-guys won't like it.

Call it a "Single White Female" for the age of Instagram. A lonely, unbalanced woman (Aubrey Plaza) who has recently lost her mother moves to California to stalk/befriend an Instagram star (Elizabeth Olsen) and her artist husband (Wyatt "son of Kurt" Russell). Plaza, whom I've liked since "Parks and Recreation," fully commits to the part and is able to make a pretty unlikable character both sympathetic and cringe-worthy. I think it wants to be saying something about social media culture, but it's not quite clever enough. Worth seeing for those who like their indie movies dark and a little off kilter. Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson, Jr. co-stars.

A disturbing dark comedy that can serve as a lesson on being wary of who you connect with and how much you share on social media. Aubrey Plaza is brilliant as Ingrid, a disturbed young woman who develops obsessions with, befriends and stalks other women she follows on Instagram. Many of the characters - including Ingrid - are flawed and unlikeable. Ever just want to see people get what's coming to them? This is exactly what kept my interest here.
