"Wish I Was Here" is the second feature film that Braff has created from the ground up. He saw massive success with his first project, "Garden State," which debuted at Sundance in 2004. Braff wrote the script for "Wish I Was Here" with his brother Adam and crowdsourced over $3,000,000 for its production on the fundraising site Kickstarter.
Braff stars in the film alongside Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene and Joey King.
On the film's Sundance page, it is described as a story of growth and discovery:
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.
The full cast of the film will be at Sundance to support its debut.
