DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - Like star Zach Braff's last film he wrote and directed, Garden State, this is a comedy with serious dramatic emotional moments, though this time aimed at a bit of an older audience. Fans of him and co-stars Mandy Patinkin, Kate Hudson, and Josh Gad will enjoy though other familiar face such as Jim Parsons, Donald Faison, and Ashley Greene only have very small roles. Sex, language, and adult subject matter make the film not for kids despite there being prominent kid characters.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The acting is excellent across the board.

USA Today Full Review
Average 'Wish I Was Here' dreams big but tries too hard.

Average But the relentless cultural signifiers trap the film in an amber that already feels dated.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff) and his wife Sarah (Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson) live in Los Angeles with their two children, Grace (Joey King of Fargo) and Tucker (Pierce Gagnon of Looper). Sarah supports the family with her public service job, while struggling actor Aidan auditions and escapes into fantasies about being the futuristic space knight of his childhood dreams.

Gabe (Mandy Patinkin of Homeland), the widowed father to Aidan and bachelor Noah (Josh Gad of Frozen), has been paying for his grandchildren's schooling but now no longer can. While Gabe musters considerable strength to battle his serious illness, Aidan eschews cultural traditions and embarks on a chaotic attempt to home-school Grace and Tucker. Away from his brother's household, Noah tries to assert his creativity by crafting a distinctive costume to wow a comic-book convention and woo cosplay enthusiast Janine (Ashley Greene of Twilight).

Aidan's curriculum for Grace and Tucker leads to some surprising self-discoveries for everyone. Further reassessing his career, his family, and his faith, Aidan realizes that he and those closest to him can find fulfillment by exploring new chapters in their lives.
