Review: Garden State

You expect a dark comedy to be funny. You never expect it to be inspirational. Although I was disappointed by the ending, as a whole I recommend this film for the laughs and for the message. Natalie Portman gets the regional accent down pat, and Zach Braff effectively tells this you-can't-go-home-again story. Rarely is a reflection on the pushing-30 folks of the world done so well, and so honestly. Grade: B+
