Call me a sucker, but I just love a movie that tugs at my heartstrings…and I have to tell you from the second I saw the first preview for The Odd Life of Timothy Green I was sold.
So yes, obviously the basic concept is make-believe…but I love that the movie looks so magical and has something good happen to a couple who are struggling with infertility….which can be blindingly painful.
Academy Award–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (“Dan in Real Life,” What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”) brings enchantment to the screen with “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” It’s the inspiring, magical story of a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim—and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
