New Trailer For Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here
The Kickstarted indie sees Braff trying find his way in life

Following the success of his Kickstarter campaign to fund his second writing/directing/staring effort, Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff scored again at Sundance when Focus features picked up the film. He’s launched a new trailer for the project, and you can see his trademark blend of whimsy, life issues and indie music is fully on display again. 

Wish I Was Here is the story of Aidan Bloom (Braff), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity and a purpose for his life. He and his wife (Kate Hudson) 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 when he was young.

When his ailing father (Mandy Patinkin) can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids, Grace (Joey King) and Tucker (Pierce Gagnon), and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them. Soon he’s concocting brand new ways to educate, all the while worrying that he might not be up to the new challenges in his life.

Braff has recruited a solid cast beyond those listed above, with Josh Gad, Braff's (or at least JD's) hetero life-partner Donald Faison, Michael Weston, Jim Parsons and Ashley Greene all aboard. Wish I Was Here arrives on UK screens on September 19.
