Focus Features has released a new Wish I Was Here clip from co-writer/director Zach Braff’s upcoming comedic drama.  Braff also stars in the film as a struggling actor, father, and husband who is seeking purpose in life and trying to come to terms with the impending death of his father (Mandy Patinkin).  This new clip features a scene between Braff and his Scrubs co-star/friend Donald Faison, who plays a high-end car salesman.  It’s a funny scene, and it’s indicative of some of the goofier moments from the film.  I caught the pic and Sundance and found it to be rather disappointing, but it’s not without merit.  The humor is mostly spot-on and Kate Hudson is genuinely great as Braff’s supportive wife.

Hit the jump to watch the new Wish I Was Here clip and click here to read my full review.  The film also stars Joey KingJosh GadPierce GagnonAshley Greene, and Jim Parsons.  Wish I Was Here opens in limited release on July 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Wish I Was Here:

“Wish I Was Here” is the story of Aidan Bloom (played by me), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid.

When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them.

The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.
