Zach Braff's Kickstarted film Wish I Was Here is set to premiere at Sundance this month. In anticipation of its release we have a poster to share with you. This is Braff's second directorial effort, and it also stars Josh Gad, Mandy Patinkin, Ashley Greene, Donald Faison, and Jim Parsons. The GeekTyrant crew is up at the film festival, and we'll let you know if the movie is worth seeing or not. Here's the synopsis:
“Wish I Was Here” is the story of Aidan Bloom (played by Zach Braff), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid.
When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them.
The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.
