Gillian Jacobs And Kris Rey Chat About “I Used To Go Here”


Only a few films in, Kris Rey is an emerging voice on the independent cinema scene that’s well worth paying attention to. Gillian Jacobs, of course, is one of the better young actresses in the business. So, combing the writing and directing talents of Ray with the acting of Jacobs was always going to be a fruitful partnership. That collaboration, the indie comedy I Used to Go Here, comes out tomorrow (my positive review can be found right here), but last week, Jacobs and Ray were kind enough to get on a conference call/Zoom with me to talk about their movie. That conversation comes your way today!

Below you can find my chat with Jacobs and Rey. It’s a laughed filled one, so much so that I actually paired it down a bit, so it wasn’t too meandering. There’s still some really excellent stuff to be found. From what attracted Jacobs to the role, what made Rey want to tell this story, and even the former’s reaction to a certain comparison I made, it’s pretty good stuff, if I do say so myself. Of course, you can be the judge, so give it a listen and don’t sleep on this flick. It’s incredibly enjoyable and well worth a viewing this weekend…

Here now is my interview with Gillian Jacobs and Kris Rey. Enjoy:
