Garden State came to me via a friend living in California who said it was the best film ever and her friend had driven 3 hours to see it because at that stage it was only showing in two towns in the world (LA and NYC if I remember rightly). Now it is a major success and everyone has heard about it. Due in no small part to the Garden State Blog that director and star Zach Braff keeps going. Yes he’s JD from Scrubs, but with this film he is also an accomplished director. I haven’t actually seen the film yet because it isn’t officially released here in New Zealand until tomorrow. There were some advance screenings but things transpired against me. Expect a full review when I can organise the Common People™ for a screening.
