    Synopsis


    Garden State
    In the wake of his success on the hit NBC sitcom Scrubs, actor Zach Braff made his debut behind the camera writing, directing, and starring in this bittersweet romantic comedy. Braff plays Andrew Largeman, a young man who has just received word of his mother's passing. With this news, Andrew returns to the town in which he grew up, where he is greeted by his father, Gideon (Ian Holm), a psychiatrist. In addition to mourning the loss of his mother, Andrew is also attempting to adjust to life without the emotionally numbing antidepressants that he has recently opted to discontinue using. Gradually, with the absence of the pills, his reconnection with his past, and the introduction of Sam (Natalie Portman), a woman who would seem to have little in common with him, into his life, Andrew is able to see the potential for some positive changes. Also starring Jean Smart and Peter Sarsgaard, Garden State was once titled Large's Ark and premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

      Zach Braff, best known from the TV series Scrubs, proves himself to be a triple threat as the writer, director and star of GARDEN STATE. Braff plays Andrew Largeman, a struggling actor who returns to his New Jersey home town after a nine-year absence to attend his mother's funeral. Natalie Portman is perfectly cast as Sam, the endearingly eccentric young woman who encounters Andrew.. GARDEN STATE is funny and poignant, and I highly recommend it.

      My girlfriend couldn't believe I'd not seen this picture and when I saw how low the price was I picked it up. I really enjoyed this story. Zach Braff sheds his Scrubs persona and does a solid job with his first film as a writer and director. While the drama is touching but not over the top, the comedy keeps the plot very well balanced.

      Not the best video in the world for a Blu-Ray but still a great movie back when Zach Braff seemed like he was going to be more than just the lead on Scrubs. Natalie Portman plays a great weirdo foil. Fun movie.

      I saw this for the first time not too long ago and I absolutely love it. Garden State is a truly beautiful and relatable film and also has a magnificent soundtrack. I randomly found this in the 6 dollar Blu ray bin and I was so thrilled.

      I watched this amazing movie back when I was a teenager, it still is one of my favorite movies. Based on how it was filmed when it was first released, there is little difference between the DVD and Bluray, but it still has a big improvement. It's a must for your collection regardless.

      Teens first becoming aware of indie cinema might be smitten with this sorta coming-of-age film. But it's a bit sappy and sentimental for the adults in the audience. Might be worth watching for perspective on 2000s popular indie cinema.
