Drama: A young woman who's obsessed with social media befriends a popular Internet figure who isn't aware of the woman's true intentions.
Ingrid Thorburn (AUBREY PLAZA) is a young woman who's obsessed with social media, especially following her mother's recent death. After a stint in a mental hospital following an attack on another woman who didn't invite Ingrid to her wedding, she becomes intrigued by Instagram star Taylor Sloane (ELIZABETH OLSEN), what with reading a story about her and her desire to be everyone's friend. Of course, Taylor meant that in reference to online "friends," but Ingrid mistakes that and after a few meaningless online exchanges she becomes obsessed with her. So much so that after inheriting a decent amount of money from her mother, Ingrid moves to Santa Monica where Taylor lives with her struggling artist husband, Ezra O'Keefe (WYATT RUSSELL).

After renting a room from aspiring screenwriter Dan Pinto (O'SHEA JACKSON JR.), Ingrid sets out to get herself into Taylor's life and abducts her dog so that she can pretend to find the pooch, be the hero of the story, and become friends with Taylor. That ends up working and the two become best friends, but things become complicated when Taylor's recovering alcoholic brother, Nicky (BILLY MAGNUSSEN), shows up with word that he met an even bigger Internet star than Taylor, Harley Chung (POM KLEMENTIEFF), and that the two women should meet.

That obviously doesn't sit well with Ingrid who now believes her relationship with Taylor has been compromised. As her obsession turns into something more disturbing, she does what she can to remain relevant in Taylor's eyes as well as on the Internet.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
