La Lindsay Posted August 17, 2004 Share Posted August 17, 2004 I went to see Garden State yesterday with a few friends at Sunset Place. Zack Braff (from Scrubs) writes, directs, and stars in this dramedy about Andrew Largeman (Braff) who moves back home after the death of his mother to attend the funeral and deal with some issues he has had with his estranged family and life. Helping him out through his ordeal are some of his old friends, but mainly a new friend Sam (Natalie Portman). I've always liked Portman but after seeing this movie, I love this girl. She's ridiculously beautiful in a very clean and innocent way and in this movie she is absolutely wonderful. Her character is quirky in a way that makes you fall in love with her. The only downfalls that I could see in this movie are that it gets a little too sappy in some parts and in a couple of parts, it drags out a bit. Overall though, this is one of those movies that will leave you with a big stupid smile on your face. I highly recommend it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
