Scroll down to watch the trailer for the film, which comes a decade after Braff's 2004 directorial debut. It follows Braff's character Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor who reluctantly agrees to home-school his sick father's two young children. The film also features Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons, Homeland's Mandy Patinkin and Braff's former Scrubs co-star Donald Faison as well as Ashley Greene.



Braff also co-wrote the script. Speaking previously about the plot, Braff said: "The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own."

He appealed for money to make the movie from fans on Kickstarter, a campaign that attracted controversy when it emerged that the project would also receive funding from a New York film company and Braff himself.
