The High Cost of Living Trailer: Zach Braff Unleashes His Inner Bonebag

We haven’t seen much of Zach Braff since the end of “Scrubs” and since his two post-Garden State films, The Ex and The Last Kiss failed to propel him to a feature movie player. He’s now back in a decidedly un-Braffian role, playing the lead in The High Cost of Living, a dreary-looking low-budget Canadian film about a man who hits-and-runs a pregnant lady. Feeling guilty, he goes out of his way to make nice with the pregnant woman, who doesn’t know he was the driver, and … well, you can envision every beat of this film, since it’s right out of the rom-com handbook, only the tone and tenor is turned on its head.

Still, I can’t hate on Braff, so it’s nice to see the guy in films again, even those that will receive only a token theatrical release on May 13. It’s already on VOD, if you can find it.
