You may remember a few months ago that Zach Braff (of Scrubs and Garden State-fame) decided to make a film and get the funding for it on Kickstarter. Said film now has a trailer, which is less like a proper trailer than you think.
Basically, it’s a series of clips that doesn’t really explain the plot, it more serves to highlight a few cool shots and gives you the ability to listen to a cool song by The Shins.
Braff explains on his Kickstarter a few months ago what the film is about:
“Wish I Was Here” is the story of Aidan Bloom (played by me), 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.
It was written by my brother, Adam, and me last summer.
