In the case of “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” the title is a good indication of what to expect from the movie. But that’s not to say the movie is all about being odd, in fact, it’s quite entrenched in the classic feel-good movie template.
The latest clip released from the film focuses on a moment just after Timothy enters the world and the main couple is still figuring out exactly what happened:
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,” 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.
