Focus Features has released a fantastic new trailer for Zack Braff's crowd funded indie film project, Wish I Was Here. I had a chance to see this movie at Sundance earlier this year, and it got mixed reviews. People seemed to either like it or hate it. I was one of the people that actually really enjoyed the movie. It wasn't as good as Garden State, but I thought the story was inspirational and that Braff did a solid job developing it. You can check out our video review of the film here. Here's the synopsis:
'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.
The film also stars stars Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, Joey King, and Pierce Gagnon. It's set to be released in New York and Los Angeles on July 18th and will then expand into more theaters on July 25th and August 1th.
