In Zach Braff’s Kickstarter-backed dramedy, a struggling actor (Braff) homeschools his two kids when his rich, disapproving dad (Mandy Patinkin) is diagnosed with cancer and can no longer pay for private school. Like his last film, Garden State, Wish features paternal issues, noodling on the meaning of life, a great rock soundtrack, and a hilarious cosplay scene. “People joked that I made Garden State so I could make out with Natalie Portman,” says Braff, who wrote the script with his brother Adam. “I made this film so my brother and I could have intelligent, brave conversations with our father about life and death.” Oddly, there’s no Harry Chapin on the soundtrack.
