The Ryan Reynolds and Julia Roberts-starring family drama Fireflies in the Garden has set its domestic release for October 14 in Los Angeles and New York.

The film screened three years ago at the Berlin Film Festival.

The semiautobiographical story was written and directed by Dennis Lee, and centers on the complexities of love and commitment in a family torn apart when faced by an unexpected tragedy.

Willem Dafoe portrays a tenured professor on track to become university president while his son, played by Ryan Reynolds, is a well-known romance novelist. Julia Roberts plays the family's matriarch.
