Watch Ryan Reynolds endure family tragedy with Julia Roberts and Willem Dafoe in the Fireflies in the Garden trailer

Aug. 26, 2011by: Dave Davis

Ryan Reynolds didn't exactly stomp the box office this summer wearing the suit of a DC superhero or Jason Bateman, but how will he do with some good old-fashioned family hardship and suffocating guilt? We'll find out in FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN, which has been awaiting release since 2008, aging like a fine wine or a depressing movie nobody really wants to see.

Joining Reynolds in the kin catastrophe are Julia Roberts, Willem Dafoe, Hayden Panettierre, Ioan Gruffud, Emily Watson and Carrie-Anne Moss. The drama finally unfolds on October 14th.

The synopsis: To an outsider, the Taylors are the very picture of the successful American family: Charles is a tenured professor on track to become university president, son Michael is a prolific and well-known romance novelist, daughter Ryne is poised to enter a prestigious law school, and on the day we are introduced to them, matriarch Lisa will graduate from college -- decades after leaving to raise her children. But when a serious accident interrupts the celebration, the far more nuanced reality of this Midwestern family's history and relationships come to light.

So a studio holds this until AFTER both Ryan Reynolds and Julia Roberts has turned in to box office poison and THEN they release it??? Some exec needs to be fired.

They released this AAAAAAAAAAGEEEEEEES ago in the UK.

Good film, if a little melodramatic and overacted it parts. I saw it on general release. For a second I thought Joblo had accidentally put its news feed back 2 years.
Still, hope you Yanks finally get to enjoy this little gem of a film. It isn't perfect but well worth seeking out.

Got a weird feeling that Ryan Reynolds -- with THAT beard -- could make a Bill Hicks biopic.

Amazing cast ='s

amazing movie. I have to see this Willem Dafoe looks amazing as always, looks like he plays a real hard ass. I love seeing ryan doing different parts. He's truly an amazing actor. And roberts doesn't look to annoying here thats good :) But this just looks so damn depressing, I was getting teary eye when i was watching it. :(

Hahahahaha, I got sick of waiting for it to be released in the US and just downloaded a copy since I think it was already released in the UK.

It was pretty good. Great performances all around.
