:: Spotlight :: Movie Trailer - Wish I Was Here

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Wish I Was Here is the story of Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife (Kate Hudson) are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasising about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid. When his ailing father (Mandy Patinkin) can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them. The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.

Featuring new music from THE SHINS, CAT POWER & COLDPLAY. Soundtrack available on Sony Music.
