Wish I Was Here

10 years after Garden State Zach Braff comes back with Wish I Was Here. The movie got a lot of attention for being financed through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. 

Critics can’t agree on wether this is a good or bad movie. I for one liked it even though I think that it could have been so much better given the cast and the type of story that resembles that of Garden State. 

The movie is interesting and there’s moments to laugh and other moments more dramatic and they combine well but there are elements that I didn’t get in there too. 

Here’s the plot from Wikipedia:

Wish I Was Here is the story of Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He winds up trying to home school his two children when his father can no longer afford to pay for private education and the only available public school is on its last legs. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.
