I Used To Go Here 2020
Description: Following the launch of her new novel, 35-year-old writer Kate is invited to speak at her alma matter by her former professor. After accepting the invitation, Kate finds herself deeply enmeshed in the lives of a group of college students.
“I Used to Go Here,” from writer/director Kris Rey, captures the sometimes uneasy in-between time of life in your mid-30s, when your college dreams haven’t exactly panned out, or if they have then they didn’t bring you what you thought they would bring. Some people flourish in their 30s.
But for others, it’s a difficult decade, with hard-to-name tensions. Maybe you feel like you should be further along on whatever path you have chosen. Maybe you look around, and all of your friends are married and pregnant. Maybe you feel that biological clock ticking.
If you’re in a bad headspace, it seems like everyone except you is living their best lives. This sounds very dark. But “I Used to Go Here,” grounded by a beautiful performance from Gillian Jacobs, treats its subject light-heartedly, while still managing to be honest.
Kate (Jacobs) is excited to have published her first novel, although, as she declares to her best friend (a very funny Zoe Chao), “The cover is horrible.” And it really is. It’s one of the worst book covers I’ve ever seen. The title isn’t much better: Seasons Passed.
Is that a double entendre or is it just … really bad? Still, it’s something to be published, especially since her fiancé has just broken off their engagement and—according to his Instagram feed—has already moved on with another woman.
Initial sales of Seasons Passed are disappointing, and her publishers get spooked, canceling her upcoming book tour (their forced pep-talk cheerfulness over the phone is crushing). Bereft, Kate takes up an offer from her alma mater to do a book reading.
Thrust back into the familiar world of her old college town, she is overwhelmed by nostalgia. Her book reading is organized by her onetime writing mentor (Jemaine Clement), now head of the Creative Writing department. He’s got his wife in tow, but he flirts with Kate, asking her to go out for a drink afterwards. He’s handsome, wearing a turtleneck and blazer, and his behavior is a little bit sleazy, but it’s the kind of sleazy favored by men who consider themselves to be intellectuals. This is such a specific dynamic and Clement nails it.
