I love my Netflix subscription (okay, so maybe my feelings aren't quite that strong...but I do appreciate it a lot.) It's let me catch up with movies that I heard good things about but, for one reason or another, didn't get to see when they were in the theaters. Being laid up on a rainy day is, of course, a great time to kick back and watch a movie...and I'm certainly glad that I had this one on hand today.
Zach Braff's Garden State is everything I heard it was...warm, quirky, poignant, sweetly romantic. It's a lovely little movie...Braff is wonderfully low-key and Natalie Portman is radiant and adorable. It left me with warm buzz in my heart (and yes a happy little tear in my usually cynical eye.)
And it has a killer soundtrack to boot (gotta remember to add that CD to my Amazon.com wishlist before my birthday next month :-)
