Braff film hits mark


LOS ANGELES – Despite facing criticism for allegedly milking cash from fans, actor and director Zach Braff’s Kickstarter campaign to fund his latest film “Wish I Was Here” reached its $2 million fundraising goal last weekend.

It only took three days.

The film is a follow-up to Braff’s 2004 directorial debut “Garden State,” in which he starred as a wannabe young actor who returns to his home town after the death of his mother. “Wish I Was Here” will star Braff again and cover similar territory – about a struggling 35-year-old actor’s attempts to rediscover purpose in his life.
