Gardener of Eden is a 2007 American comedy-drama film directed by Kevin Connolly. It stars Lukas Haas, Erika Christensen and Giovanni Ribisi.


Adam Harris (Haas), a twenty-something college dropout, returns to his hometown, the fictional "Bickleton" in New Jersey, and moves back in with his parents. Lacking real direction in his life, Adam spends his time working at a local deli and hanging out with his equally unambitious friends. Adam soon finds himself unemployed and cut off by his friends.

Adam's life changes dramatically when he accidentally captures a serial rapist named Richard Pope (David Bortolucci) who has just attacked a local girl, Mona Hukley (Christensen). The new-found attention inspires him to become a vigilante.


The film includes a brief appearance by Jim Parsons, just months before the start of his award winning run in the sitcom The Big Bang Theory, and a brief nude sex scene by Emily Wickersham, who joined the cast of NCIS in 2013, during its 11th season.
