This show is a part of TALES OF THE OBSESSED: Ingrid Goes West and The Movies That Inspired It

«I love stories about outsiders — intense, desperate or lonely people with their faces pressed against the glass, searching for a way in or some kind of real human connection. Like their protagonists, these films don't conform to society's standards; they're wild and unpredictable, sometimes dangerous or uncomfortable to watch, but always fascinating. When Aubrey Plaza and I were making Ingrid Goes West and looking for inspiration, these were the films we kept coming back to again and again for their fearless performances and mastery of tone. Thanks to the good people at Alamo Drafthouse for letting us share them with you. Enjoy!» — Matt Spicer, director of INGRID GOES WEST

“Allie’s new roommate is about to borrow a few things without asking. Her clothes. Her boyfriend. Her life.”

The movie that best depicts the anxieties of ending up with a terrible roommate, SINGLE WHITE FEMALE exists in the pre-Craigslist world where finding a stranger to share an apartment can’t be backed up with Google and Facebook searches to vouch for sanity. When Allie (Bridget Fonda), a beautiful, fashionable software designer, brings on Hedy (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a shy, dowdy woman, as her roommate, the two strike up a friendship. But soon it becomes apparent that Hedy has trouble with boundaries — at first innocently enough by exhibiting jealousy of Allie’s boyfriend Sam (Steven Weber). Then Hedy puts her full crazy on display when she gets the exact same haircut as Allie, even dressing in her style! Jennifer Jason Leigh manages to make Hedy more layered than your average thriller maniac, and sufficiently unsettling. SINGLE WHITE FEMALE also has one of the best murder weapons of cinema — a spike heel shoe!
