Story


Following his celebrated debut feature, Garden State, Zach Braff delivers a new postcard from the edge of existential crisis, this time playing a thirtysomething family man wrestling with a few minor hindrances-like his disapproving father, an elusive God, and yes, adult responsibility. Aidan Bloom is a pot-smoking actor whose last job, a dandruff commercial, was longer ago than he cares to admit. Pursuing his 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, rather than sticking to the boring old traditional curriculum.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..is just as emotionally rich and heartfelt as his 2004 coming of age classic Garden State..”
by Mara Reinstein [Us Weekly]
“..unfortunately, after a brisk and engaging first act, the film becomes bogged down by an overabundance of subplots and increasingly maudlin dramatic turns that threaten to sink the entire affair..”
by Cory Everett [The Playlist]
“..a more mature work from actor-director-producer Zach Braff that feels like a Garden State for grown-ups..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]
