Fireflies in the Garden is a film based on a poem by Robert Frost. It focuses on a family through the children as they grow childhood to adulthood. The film’s main character is Ryan Reynolds who is making a dramatic turn in this film. No snarky comedy from him in the trailer. The film also stars Julia Roberts, Willem Dafoe, Hayden Panettiere, Emily Watson, Carrie-Ann Moss, and Ioan Gruffudd. I really liked the trailer, and the music that was used toward the end of it. Looks to be a tear-jerker and will hopefully be a good film.
“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.”
Fireflies in the Garden is in theatres October 14, 2011.
