Since green spandex and switching bodies didn't quite work as he'd hoped this Summer, Ryan Reynolds sure could use himself a win right about now. Despite having been filmed three years ago, hopefully his next leading role in 'Fireflies in the Garden' will be just the boost he needs to help us forget about the flops.

Loosely based on the life of poet laureate Robert Frost, 'Fireflies in the Garden' is about an accomplished author (Reynolds) who comes home after his mother (Julia Roberts) dies in a car crash. While coping with his grief and planning the funeral, the author tries to repair his strained relationship with his domineering father (Willem Dafoe) after a childhood filled with mental and physical abuse. Co-starring Emily Watson, Carrie-Ann Moss, and Hayden Panettiere; written and directed by Dennis Lee.
