While watching the recently released trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff's upcoming movie, it hit me that it's been a whole decade since the release of Garden State, Braff's first passion project. It doesn't matter how old you were or what state of mind you were in when you saw it, the film really hits home. Braff plays Andrew Largeman, a struggling actor who returns home for his mother's funeral and runs into a series of old friends (including Peter Sarsgaard, in a breakout role) and a supremely weird girl named Sam (Natalie Portman). It's moody, it's a little bit pretentious, and the music just makes you feel all the feelings. Ten years later, here's why you — and I — still love Garden State.
