Garden State - Zach Braff
Before you sit down to watch Garden State, the operative word in your mind is Zach Braff or rather Dr. John ‘J. D.‘ Dorian from the popular TV dramedy Scrubs. You almost expect to see his lovably bumbling, foot-deep-in-the-mouth, incurably romantic small screen avatar reiterate itself on the big screen. After all, it’s a film written and directed by him and Scrubs is where he has first proven his acting and directing mettle. You start watching the movie with a knowing smile already poised on your face, but when you are done watching it you can expect a rare teardrop ready to roll down and join your smile. You have finally found the movie which defines today’s generation.
