This is not a 4 star movie. So let me tell you why I'm giving it 4 stars:

-The password to my phone is also Elizabeth Olsen's birthday
-I get post notifications for Elizabeth's Instagram
-My phone wallpaper is of Elizabeth Olsen
-I have a life-size cardboard cutout of her as Scarlet Witch in my closet at home
-I just moved to California days ago
-I spend way too much time looking at and thinking about celebrities
-I would do pretty much anything for several people I have never met

I haven't been this heavily invested in a movie in this way in a while. If you know me, you know my absurd love for Elizabeth Olsen, so watching a crazed character go across the country just to be 'friends' with her got the full range of reactions from me. It's equally funny and sad, but as a whole, it's pretty realistic. There's a lot going on here about the danger of mixing obsession and social media, and while this is a worst case scenario, there's a level of reality to it that really got to me. I honestly still feel kind of queasy about an hour later and I'm not sure if that's good or bad. But this was definitely very interesting and did not disappoint at all.


BONUS POINTS: Do I really need to answer this?
NEGATIVE POINTS: There's no sound when you 'like' something on Instagram, like why?
