Bottom Line: Not without its sentimental cheese and forceful drive for affection TIMOTHY GREEN remains a steadfast, heartfelt and magical modern day fairytale on parenting and grabbing hold and not letting go of the moment – it's the kind of movie that’ll make you want to hug your kids more than you already do… Garner (Mrs. Affleck), Edgerton (from WARRIOR…the movie I’ve been telling you to see since last November!) and relative newcomer, CJ Adams all bring a great deal of passion to their roles and help make this a remarkably likeable and family friendly film (my 7-year and 5-year old boys seemed to really enjoy it...). Your hard-earned green would be well spent on this ODD LIFE!

Story: The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a magical story about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green, who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy 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.
