Wish I Was Here

Director Zach Braff’s follow-up to his indie breakout hit “Garden State” tells the story of a thirtysomething man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.

My Opinion: An oddly aimless story fortunately doesn’t overwhelm what is largely a feel-good film. Zach Braff’s standard man-child schtick has fortunately tempered just enough with age, and he’s balanced well by a strong supporting cast. Kate Hudson gives one of her best performances in years as a wife who’s tired and stressed without turning into the stereotypical nagging wife. Part of me wishes the structure was a little tighter, but ultimately this comes across as definitely being the product of its creator. Audience satisfaction will just depend on how they feel about Braff.
