Garden State everyman Zach Braff is readying the release of his new Kickstarter-funded feature Wish I Was Here (July 18th). Word spread back in March surrounding the film's soundtrack, which will feature new original songs by Bon Iver, Chris Martin, Cat Power, and of course, The Shins, whose contribution was recently revealed in the first official trailer (below). According to an unofficial synopsis of the film:
'Wish I Was Here' is the story of Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He winds up trying to home school his two children when his father can no longer afford to pay for private education and the only available public school is on its last legs. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn't find.
Watch the trailer below.
