Academy Award®–nominated writer/director Peter Hedges brings enchantment to the screen with Disney’s “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” an inspiring, magical story about 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.
I will tell you, when I first heard that I was going to have the opportunity to screen this film I was a little leery – I mean it’s about a kid with leaves on his legs….it just sounded, well, kinda corny. Oh my, how guilty am I to have thought for a second that his was some silly little film? I was wrong. Very wrong. Not only is this not some silly corny film, but rather the totally opposite. This film is special. The message is strong with a reminder of the importance of the little things in life.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a heart warming family film with a wonderful message. Timothy Green brings a mixture of magic and fun that a family movie should contain. With a great message that is guaranteed to bring genuine heart warming smiles and some true emotional tears, this movie will remind you of the importance of love and family.
Opening tomorrow, August 15th, The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a great end of summer family film – a must see!
I was invited by Disney to a screening of The Odd Life of Timothy Green, but all my opinion are my own.
