So a year or so ago, much to Eric's chagrin, I donated to what I believe was a VERY worthwhile cause.  I donated via Kickstarter to the much talked about, anticipated (yet criticized) new project from Zach Braff.  I mean for a girl who loves, loves, LOVES Garden State how could I not support his follow up project?

I'll be honest when I first read about his idea for the movie I was left wondering if I was going to be disappointed because it sounded nothing like Garden State (and well...I just loved that movie so much...).  But the other day they sent us backers the trailer before it was released and then they released it to the world!  Ya'll are so lucky.

I watched the trailer (like 50 times) and I instantly had that feeling wash over me like I did watching the trailer for Garden State.  I'm not disappointed.  I'm super excited for this movie (Eric (and Rich) is probably reading this and rolling his eyes at me).  Zach has an insane ability for picking the best sound tracks to his productions (including Scrubs).  I swear the music can make or break a movie.

After watching the movie, the front man for the Shins, James Mercer, was so moved he penned an entirely original piece of music just for Wish I Was Here.  It's the second song in the trailer.  Go on, watch it and give it a listen.  Amazing.  And Zach even got my name right!  ;)
