the state of gardens these days...

Garden State - A new movie by Zach Braff (of US 'hospital comedy' Scrubs fame!)

Now any movie that can boast bands like The Shins, Iron & Wine, Nick Drake and Simon & Garfunkel on its soundtrack is bound to get my attention. But a movie that has Natalie Portman saying that she is listening to this new great band called The Shins in its dialogue, well that's me pretty much bowled over right there.

The film is great (the trailer hints at its cinematic style) and it seems pretty photographic to me. Like all the shots were really thought out and artistically set up. Obviously a labour of love. Highly recommended anyway.

Watch the Garden State trailer (you will need Quicktime for this!)
