Overview

A charming comedy from talented mumblecore filmmaker Kris Rey (Unexpected), the SXSW-selected I Used to Go Here stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love) as a thirty-something writer stuck in a major rut. When her fiancé calls off their engagement, and her publisher cancels her book tour, Kate Conklin (Jacobs) is suddenly at a loss in life. A call from her favourite old professor David Kirkpatrick (Jemaine Clement) brings much-needed distraction when she's asked to give a reading at her alma mater. Back on campus once again, she finds herself welcomed back into the fray of college life by the new generation of students, partying in her old dorm room, getting up to crazy antics, and desperately trying not to feel too old.

Official Selection
— SXSW Film Festival 2020, Melbourne International Film Festival 2020
“Exquisitely awkward... a beguiling comedy of manners”
— The Guardian
“Jacobs is her own kind of movie star. She carries this movie in a way that is seemingly effortless”
— Decider
“A funny and smart study of millennial ennui... Kris Rey’s best film to date”
— IndieWire
“A charming comedy of low stakes and big heart. Rey prods at the mundane indignities of adulthood with a keen eye and a gentle touch”
— The Playlist

Why You Should See This Film

Gillian Jacobs nails this role. The part of an thirty-something woman feeling like she’s falling behind in life could easily feel clichéd, but thanks to a winning performance from Jacobs and spot-on writing from Kris Rey, the role of Kate feels incredibly lived-in and human. It’s a joy to head back to college with her for a while, and the young supporting cast deliver equally terrific turns as her new campus buds.

  • There is now (at least) a half-hour gap between sessions, so that our staff are able to do a deep clean of the cinema.
