If everything had gone as planned, I Used To Go Here– a new indie comedy about returning back to where you went to college- would have made its debut at SXSW earlier this year. But along with a bunch of other films, that obviously didn’t happen due to the pandemic.
I Used To Go Here follows a 35 year-old writer going back to her alma mater to give a lecture following the less-than-stellar release of her first book. According to the synopsis: “With her book tour canceled and her ego deflated, Kate wonders if returning to her old college as a published author might give her the morale boost she sorely needs. Instead, she falls into a comical regression – from misadventures with eccentric twenty-year-olds to feelings of jealousy toward her former professor’s new favorite student.”
The film stars Gillian Jacobs, and also features appearances by other comedy faces including Kate Micucci and Jorma Taccone. Taccone also produced the film along with fellow members of The Lonely Island Andy Samberg and Aliva Schafer. The film was written and directed by Kris Rey.
I Used To Go Here hits theaters and On Demand on August 7th.
