Despite the controversy around Braff's new project, with a cast including Braff himself, Kendrick and Mandy Patinkin it surely will delight the fans that have generously backed it. Kendrick's popularity has grown since starting out as part of the supporting cast of the Twilight films and has managed to successfully leave the franchise behind her to accumulate a mass fan base through starring in the likes of Up in the Air alongside George Clooney, touching comedy 50/50 and winter hit, Pitch Perfect. Penned by Braff and his brother, Adam Braff, Wish I was here carries on the same themes as Garden State just a decade further down the line but don't be mistaken, it is not a sequel. Set to see Braff play a struggling actor/father, it surely will delight those who funded it as well as quench our first for more Braff after his nine year hiatus from directing.
