Critics Welcome Zach Braff's Pursuit of Happiness in 'Wish I Was Here'
We probably shouldn't have to remind you by now, but Zach Braff's crowd-funded movie 'Wish I Was Here' is now playing in theatres. In a sort-of-but-not-really sequel to the cult Garden State, the movie follows a 35-year-old man and his pursuit of happiness.
The critics have welcomed Braff's unique storytelling.
"He understands the secret that parents keep from their children: We're making it up as we go along... a sweet film that reminds us that we're not alone on the journey," wrote critic Daniel M. Kimmel.
"Braff has always maintained that he chose an alternative route to retain creative control-and the film's final cut seems to vindicate his decision and the faith of the thousands of backers, too," said Christine N. Ziemba.
To celebrate the opening of Wish I Was Here, we want to remind you of the competition we're running , with a prize of $3,000. In the spirit of Braff's new movie, all we want you to do is share your secret happy snaps and let us know what makes you truly happy.
