With the strain of long distance weighing on them, Hugo and Amanda make a last ditch attempt to save a relationship in free fall. Willingly, if uncomfortably, jumping into domesticity, we watch as they awkwardly reunite and attempt to reconnect, and learn they might no longer be the people each fell in love with in the first place. All over the course of three days in the dried out-and-dead desert oasis of suburban Las Vegas, Nevada. We used to know each other is about an already-strained relationship, growing and changing as an individual, and the disharmony those things create when pushed up against one another.

ROBERT PUTKA’S FIRST FEATURE, MAD, PREMIERED AT THE 2016 SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL AND WAS DISTRIBUTED BY THE ORCHARD. CRITICS HAVE COMPARED IT TO THE CHARACTER-DRIVEN WORK OF NOAH BAUMBACH, DAVID O. RUSSELL AND ALEXANDER PAYNE, WITH THE FILM STAGE NOTING “IT DOESN’T MAKE EXCUSES FOR ITS CHARACTERS OR THEIR FLAWS. THIS ISN’T A FEEL-GOOD MOVIE ABOUT THE WAY FAMILY MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER. IT’S SHARP-EDGED IN ITS HUMOR, AND EMOTIONAL IN ITS UNDERSTANDING OF PERSONAL HISTORIES.”
