Filmmaker Zach Braff's follow-up to his indie breakout hit Garden State is a funny, touching, universal dramatic comedy about what it means to be at a major crossroads as a parent, spouse and child—all at once. Aidan Bloom (Braff) and his wife Sarah (Kate Hudson) live in Los Angeles with their two children, Grace (Joey King) and Tucker (Pierce Gagnon). Sarah supports the family with her public service job, while struggling actor Aidan auditions and escapes into fantasies about being the futuristic space knight of his childhood dreams. When Aidanís ailing, widowed father Gabe (Mandy Patinkin, "Homeland") can no longer pay for his grandchildrenís schooling, Aidan eschews cultural traditions and embarks on a chaotic attempt to home-school his kids. Aidanís curriculum for Grace and Tucker leads to some surprising self-discoveries for everyone, and causes him to reassess his life, his career and his family. Also starring Josh Gad.
