Something there is that doesn't love a wall

Aiden Bloom (Zach Braff) is an out of work actor. His wife (Kate Hudson) supports the family with a job she pretends to like. Meanwhile Aiden's dad is dying from cancer. Finances are forcing their two kids to leave the private Orthodox school. Aiden also has an engineer brother who is an underachiever. He doesn't talk to dad.

There are of course other issues. The film is a dramedy that deals with life, death, mending fences, and ideas about God. It is one of those heart warming films that I got deja vu watching. (I checked Amazon twice to see if I had already seen this film and written a review on it.) It is heavily theme driven. Would make for a decent family film once they deleted two scenes and bleeped out all the swearing.

Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex. No nudity.

Emotive, life-affirming, moving film about love and family

'Wish I Was Here' is a very touching film. My best advice is don't go in expecting a hilarious comedy, but nor is it a dour/depressing drama. Braff is steadily becoming an accomplished director, knowing when to lighten the mood, but importantly, when to keep it real and meaningful. In fact, I probably liked 'Wish I Was Here' more than 'Garden State'...

The film basically follows Aidan (Braff) and his family as they struggle to live their lives in Los Angeles - he's an out-of-work actor, wife Sarah (Hudson) is in a dull admin job, they can't afford to keep the kids in expensive Jewish school, his brother's an ambitionless drop-out, and to top it all off, his dad has lung cancer. Sounds bad? That's the basic premise - how does the human heart overcome such adversity?

Once again, a fantastic soundtrack - featuring Bon Iver, The Shins & Paul Simon - with plenty of lovely moments, whether it's a sight gag (pamphlet container) or a simple explanation of something odd (the contact lenses). There's definitely some funny moments, mostly thanks to the youngest kid, Tucker (Gagnon, from 'Looper' & 'Extant') trying to understand what he's being told. Oh, and Turk from Scrubs turns up briefly! Sure, it gets a bit dramatic in parts and perhaps doesn't have the strongest ending.

But, that being said, Grace (King), Gabe (Patinkin) & Noah (Gad) all have some scenes that seriously pull at the heart strings/tear ducts! The delicate moments are handled exceptionally and there's plenty of overt and concealed meanings in most of the scenes.

Everyday emotional loop

Well, i guess if you are looking for a movie that is full of human emotions expressed with no words spoken that would be a good one to watch. It's a journey of self discovery through daily life struggles, though the movie is simple no plot twists, ambiguous hints or lines but it's the kinda of a daily story that might have happened to you or to someone you know. if you ain't looking for anything heavy, check this out.
