A strug­gling ac­tor wean­ing him­self off a de­pen­dence on anti-de­pres­sants re­turns home af­ter a nine-year ab­sence to at­tend his mother’s fu­neral. The most ma­ture, re­ward­ing and down­right soul­ful Amer­i­can film of 2004 marked the ar­rival of its writer-di­rec­tor and star Zach Braff as a film­mak­ing force to be reck­oned with. A bit­ter­sweet, low-key com­edy-drama that ex­cels in ev­ery depart­ment. Highly rec­om­mended. Co-stars Natalie Port­man, Peter Sars­gaard.
