In the Middle Ages, a young servant fleeing from his master takes refuge at a convent full of emotionally unstable nuns. Introduced as a deaf mute man, he must fight to hold his cover as the nuns try to resist temptation.
Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.
Ingrid Thorburn is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing "likes" for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane 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.
Very enjoyable film seems perfect for the personality of Aubrey Plaza, who plays a mentally disturb chick, who saw the lifestyle of one woman, played by Elisabeth Olsen, on her Instagram feed and decides she wants this woman to be her friend and went through great pains to make that happen.
It's a dark comedy but it's not depressing. The whole thing can be somewhat grim depending on what your own personal feelings are about Instagram.
Like O'she Jackson Jr. in the movie as an inspiring screenwriter who takes a liking to Ingrid. Has his dad Ice Cube's attitude with a friendlier personality. After his amazing performance in Straight Out of Compton I would not have expected him to do something like this, but it shows acting rage for me. Hope to see him in more stuff.
Another interesting movie from Neon, who seem to be doing some real quirky stuff. This was definitely one of their best efforts.
