Wish I Was Here is about being an adult and dealing the crossroads in life.
Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff) is a 35 year old married man with two kids. His wife, Sarah (Kate Hudson) works to support the family while Aidan tries to find acting jobs. Aidan made a deal with his father Gabe (Mandy Patinkin), that he can choose his grandchildren’s school as long as he pays for it. For the past few years, Gabe has been paying the tuition so his grandchildren to attend Yeshiva. But Gabe has cancer and can no longer afford to pay the tuition. Aidan’s brother, Noah (Josh Gad) is living on the beach, emotionally and physically separated from his father.
I liked this movie. It’s bit a long, but there is a heart and a humanity to this movie. The themes of life and death, parents and children and being an adult while still not knowing everything just spoke to me.
I recommend this movie.
