Zach Braff Struts on Poster for Sundance Selected 'Wish I Was Here'
Though it wasn't on the list of my most anticipated films at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, I'm still very much excited to see how Zach Braff fares for his sophomore directing effort Wish I Was Here. As someone who still loves and defends Garden State as many say it hasn't aged well, I'm hoping Braff has crafted a worthy follow-up. This time he's got an impressive cast along with him including Kate Hudson, Josh Gad and Mandy Patinkin. And like his directorial debut, Braff also stars in the film about a 35-year-old struggling actor, father, and husband, who is still trying to find purpose in his life, especially after the death of his father. Now we have a stylish teaser poster for the film that has popped up. Look now!
Here's the first poster for Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here, via SlashFilm:
Wish I Was Here is directed by Zach Braff from a script he co-wrote with his brother Adam Braff. The "Scrubs" star and Garden State director also leads the film as thirtysomething family man wrestling with a few minor hindrances—like his disapproving father, an elusive God, and yes, adult responsibility. Pursuing a thespian dream has landed him and his wife in tough financial straits, so when his grumpy father can no longer pay for the kids to attend Jewish Yeshiva, Aidan opts for homeschooling. To the chagrin of his hyperdisciplined, religious daughter and the delight of his less-than-studious son, Aidan takes matters into his own imaginative hands. The film premieres at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival this month. Cool?
