Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid Goes West ★★½

Saying a little something before it winds up saying mostly nothing, "Ingrid Goes West" takes its aim at social media and, if there is such a thing, the culture of the influencer. That aim crumbles as the comedy's story, following a young woman's unhinged quest to befriend a public figure, takes over, allowing smart commentary to be washed out by the tale of an ill-fated friendship. There is color and character to the production, and the cast is neatly appointed; but a lack of meaningful pulse does in the entire affair. It all rates as mediocre stuff with a core that could have been something more.
