For Garden State, drugs are clearly not the key to a better life; Natalie Portman is. Barring that, try music.
Everything I have heard about the film suggests that I will love it (New Jersey, Natalie Portman, The Shins, that snarky guy from Scrubs
; it sounds like Paradise in film format). My only question is whether I should spend $8 to watch it in a theater, or just wait till it comes out on DVD.
