Sometimes, just when we think we have it all, our past comes back to remind us of who we used to be, and what we used to want. In Somebody I Used to Know, Alison Brie stars as Ally, a workaholic TV producer who returns to her hometown after a professional setback and rekindles a relationship with the one who got away, Sean, played by Jay Ellis. This forces Ally to question who she has become and what she truly wants, but it’s the presence of Cassidy (Kiersey Clemons), who Sean is meant to marry, and her youthful spirit and confidence that reminds Ally of who she used to be.
The film not only stars Brie, but she co-wrote the script with her husband, Dave Franco, who is also the director. Brie also starred in Franco’s directorial debut, The Rental, and the two are quickly becoming one heck of a creative duo. That’s one of the things I wanted to talk with Brie about in my conversation with her about the film. We also discussed where their idea for the film came from, her passion for romantic comedies, and the chemistry she forged with Ellis.
Somebody I Used to Know hits Prime Video on February 10th. Check out the interview below!
