1. New Jersey's state name
2. A great and quirky independent film that turned out to be a surprising hit.
I need to visit New Jersey. And Garden State is a great film.

An independent film about a man's struggle (Zach Braff) with coping with the loss of his mother, with a life of prescription induced apathy (and the release of this apathy through new found love as he returns home) and can finally live his emotions after living life without prescription drugs and finally letting go the secret of his mother's disablity by the end of the movie.
There's not really an example that can go here...it's a movie.

It's Zach BRAFF, not Bradford. If you're going to give a definition, at least know the name. I mean, he wrote, directed and starred in the damn thing.
"Like, oh my god, I totally like Zach Bradford.. you know, the guy from Garden State!"
"Zach Bradford.. you mean, Zach Braff? Yeah.. you should probably think twice before you go and say something about him without knowing his name..."

Going back to that imaginary place we all call home to find out who we are. Only to find you and so much more. Meet old friends, stumble upon love, and letting go.
Simply feeling again.
Last night i found my Garden State, it was here the whole time.

An absolutely amazing film that was written, directed, and starred in by Zach Braff. Natalie Portman, Ian Holm, and Peter Saarsgard also starred. The movie is beautiful in every meaning of the word, and is extremely real and intimate. It is also funny and is shot perfectly.

The soundtrack also contains WONDERFUL music by The Shins, Frou Frou, Remy Zero, Zero 7, Iron and Wine, and Coldplay, among others. Perfect.
Zach Braff is a genius.

"Good luck exploring the infinite abyss!"
"Hey, you too!"
