Elizabeth Olsen and Aubrey Plaza's new movie deals with a topic you're probably all too familiar with: the pitfalls of social media. Plaza's lonely, unhinged character moves to L.A. to befriend—well, stalk—her favorite Instagram star, played by Olsen.

The movie opens today, so book those seats ASAP.
The author of the novel turned hit HBO show Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty, just published her newest book, Truly Madly Guilty. Of course, Reese Witherspoon is already a fan—she Instagrammed the book with this caption: "Hey #BigLittleLies fans... have you read #TrulyMadlyGuilty by #LianeMoriarty? It's a great summer book about 6 adults, 3 cute kids & BBQ that goes wrong. A real page turner!"
