WISH I WAS HERE
2014, Focus Features, 106 min, USA, Dir: Zach Braff

Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff) could be the central character from GARDEN STATE ten years down the road, after the phone has stopped ringing and even his wife (Kate Hudson) thinks he should get a real job. But when his father’s (Mandy Patinkin) medical expenses start to mount and Aidan must pull his two kids out of private school, he lands a new role - that of homeschool teacher. “Sincere, funny, thoughtful and spiritual, often poignant, and with a deep strain of existential worry running underneath the whole thing.” - Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com.
