Writer/Director Zach Braff delivers “an Oscar®-worthy performance” (CBS-TV Chicago) opposite a “wacky and endearing” (Newsweek) Natalie Portman in this quirky, coming-of-age comedy. Twentysomething, emotionally detached Andrew “Large” Largeman (Braff) hasn’t been home to New Jersey in nine years. Now, as Large attempts to re-connect with a variety of odd acquaintances – including his father – he decides to risk getting high on the most potent and unpredictable drug there is…life! Co-starring Peter Sarsgaard, Ian Holm and Method Man, Garden State is “marvelous fun” (Rolling Stone)

Cast & Crew
Mr. Braff, Ms. Portman, Mr. Sarsgaard and Mr. Holm never strike a false note as a remarkably coherent acting ensemble, and it is good to see Ron Leibman again in the small role of Doctor Cohen.
Sweet, fuzzy and quirky in a good way -- much like the cracked friendships it engagingly depicts.
Cleverly written, sensitively directed and very well-acted.
Garden State may not define an entire generation, but it has a sharp eye for the passive aimlessness that can take hold when young adults realize there's no handbook on how to find purpose and meaning in life.
The best parts of this droll, quietly witty drama have the ring of truth.
The kind of movie that reminds you why you love movies so much, a film so filled with unexpected energy and ambition and sly intelligence it gives you hope for the future.
