FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN
To an outsider, the Taylors are the very picture of a successful American family: Charles (Willem Dafoe) is a tenured professor on track to become university president, son Michael (Ryan Reynolds) is a prolific and well-known romance novelist and daughter Ryne (Shannon Lucio) is poised to enter a prestigious law school. On the day we are introduced to them, matriarch Lisa (Julia Roberts) 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 comes to light.
