Seattle pictures... are being edited... but holy cow do I over photograph... so here's something else I've been thinking about. :)
Over the summer KC and I saw a LOT of movies.... at a LOT of different theaters in Kansas City. One of my favorite movies we saw was Zach Braff's 'Wish I Was Here.'
I have been a Zach Braff fan since Garden State, so I knew that I would want to see this movie too.
The movie is about a man who's life is more-or-less falling apart. His marriage is lack luster, his career is stagnant, his brother is a bum, and his father's cancer has returned (which consequently leaves his kids unable to continue attendance at their private school). -Sounds like a bummer right?
Luckily this plot also contains a lot of humor and triumph. As the story develops the theme quickly turns to hope. The main character does his best to take care of his family and repair his crumbling life. In turn he helps himself in the process. They realize and achieve dreams that they didn't know they had.
More than anything I like that this movie makes you think about how you live your life. It had KC and I talking the whole way home about how we spend our days, and how we shouldn't waste it. It isn't every day that you think about your 'dreams'. -We should do this more often!
If you are looking for an offbeat and thought provoking movie this is for you. (though this movie is pretty mature, not for younger viewers!)
'Wish I Was Here' is now on DVD, Netflix, and iTunes in the US.
Have you seen this movie? Did it get you thinking about how you want to be living your life?
Blanc Burger (delicious!).
