Where did you watch this movie?

This is the story of Aidan Bloom, 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.

Inspired by the success of Veronica Mars' ability to raise funds for the movie by using the website www.kickstarter.com, Zach Braff gave people the opportunity to invest in this movie using the website as well. He was looking to raise $2 million dollars. Depending on the donation, people could get a video diary of the making of the movie, tickets to screenings, and for the highest level of $10,000 a credited part in the movie. The drive started on April 24, 2013, and was to last one month. As of April 30, 2013 the film raised $2,258,710.00 or 112% of the desired goal.

Anna Kendrick was set to play Janine, but fell out due to scheduling issues and was replaced by her Twilight Saga cohort Ashley Greene.
