Fireflies in the Garden


Fireflies in the Garden
To outsiders, a particualr midwestern family is the picture of success: Dad is a tenured professor on track to become university president, his son is a prolific and well-known romance novelist, his daughter is poised to enter a prestigious law school, and on the day we are introduced to them, his mother will finally graduate from college. But when a serious accident interrupts the celebration, the far more nuanced reality of this Midwestern family's history and relationships come to light.

Tomatometer quote iconDespite boasting a stellar cast, Fireflies in the Garden is just tedious, dull and predictable melodrama. Instantly forgettable.
