My Top Ten Films of the Decade: #6 Garden State

This directorial debut by Zach Braff is nice little coming of age story about a depressed man returning home to New Jersey after his mother’s death and finding love.  This is the film that allowed me to stop associating Natalie Portman with the Star Wars prequels, which is probably a good thing.

The film also has a very good soundtrack, which is one of the few soundtracks I actually bought.
