'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.Written by

Well the wisdom that came up for me was that, the things left unsaid, stay with us forever. I wish nothing more than if I could tell my sister how much I loved her and that I always idolized her, but we never said those things. We just weren't like that. Then suddenly one day she's gone. And I have all these things to say, but no one to say them to.
Both my boys know how I feel.
Are you sure...

Great and beautiful movie, but a bit too much swearing and sexual references.
"Wish I Was Here" was a brilliantly constructed film, and had a great selection in actors playing different roles. It was a funny, dramatic film, which was just hilarious on so many levels. The main cons for me in this film was the fact that it had just a bit too much swearing (coarse language) and that it was a bit too sexual, especially near the end. Nevertheless, it was a very funny movie. The reason I rated it 8/10 is because of the sexual references and the coarse language, that is pretty much all. Zach Braff (my opinion) was and is a great actor, especially in Scrubs. He and the crew did a great job making this film come alive and out into the world. To sum up: Great selection in actors, the film is very comedic and very dramatic, I love it.
