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