Why to Watch - Garden State

You don’t need to be from the Garden State to appreciate this one. Ultimately an offbeat love story, but a very raw feel, unique style, this is not your Zach Braff from Scrubs. Would even go as far as to say this is the OG Hipster film.



Garden State (2004) Comedy, Drama, Romance | 102min | August 20, 2004 (United States) 7.4
Director: Zach BraffWriter: Zach BraffStars: Zach Braff, Peter Sarsgaard, Natalie PortmanSummary: Andrew Largeman is a semi-successful television actor who plays an intellectually disabled quarterback.

Andrew decides to lay off the drugs that his father and his doctor made him believe that he needed, and began to see life for what it is. He began to feel the pain he had longed for, and began to have a genuine relationship with a girl who had some problems of her own. —MichaelAGodfrey@aol.com
