If you’re looking for a good movie this weekend, go check out Garden State [caution - website has a soundtrack — why? why?]. Zach Braff (writer, director, star, guy from Scrubs) also now has a related blog.
The New York Times review makes it out to be this generation’s “The Graduate.” In comparison Garden State is a pretty straightforward love story. Natalie Portman is excellent as the quirky love interest. In general the movie did a good job of catching you off guard with the funny bits (my favorite being a cameo by a stiff, dead hamster).
