Garden State

Garden State was a brilliant film. Zach Braff, J.D. from Scrubs, is writer, director, and star of the film. Zach Braff plays Andrew Largeman, a man who returns home after nine years for his mother’s funeral. Largeman has been on very powerful antidepressants since a young age and for the first time, has stopped taking them. With the medications, he was numb to most emotions. Now, for the first time in his adult life, he’s living life as himself. The film is of him finding himself and finding his love.
Parts of the movie were kind of sappy, but I like these types of romances. The script was very good, there were many great scenes, and the camera angle choices were superb. The music chosen was excellent, and I’ve been listening to the soundtrack for a few days now.
Zach Braff did very well with as writing and directing debut, and I look forward to seeing more of his work.
