WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Aidan Bloom (Braff) is a struggling actor, husband and father who at the age of 35 still hasn’t found his identity nor a purpose in life. When circumstances force his kids Grace (King) and Tucker (Gagnon) to leave private education, Aidan takes it upon himself to home school them and, as his teaching skills develop he is able to find parts about himself he never realised were there…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Ten years after his acclaimed directorial debut Garden State, former Scrubs star Zach Braff brings us his sophomore indie flick in the form of the charming and free-spirited Wish I Was Here (partially funded by a public Kickstarter campaign, too – so WE made this happen more than anything!).
