The Odd Life of Timothy Green

I recently got to review The Odd Life of Timothy Green on BluRay!

 This film is appropriate for a family film, for ages 7+.
It is a little sad, so get ready with your box of tissues!

A childless couple bury a box in their backyard, containing all of their wishes for an infant. Soon, a child is born, though Timothy Green is not all that he appears.

Director: Peter Hedges
Writers: Peter Hedges (screenplay), Ahmet Zappa (story)
Stars: Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton and CJ Adams | See full cast and crew

I have to admit, I wasn't sure whether I'd like this movie a lot, or a little but I knew we'd enjoy it. It has an all-star cast and it's a Disney movie, so it was bound to be good.

I enjoyed it more than I assumes I would. The story was easy to follow and heartwarming. A story about a couple who longs for a child of their own. They are given this "plant boy" who plants seeds of hope into their lives. They are flabbergasted that he is everything they ever hoped and wanted in a child.  They grow as parents, learning to love and defend and all the ups and downs that go with parenting.

*Spoiler Alert!*

They in time grow to love him as their very own, only to have him whisked away, like a storm, as fast as he was brought in, he is swept out.  Timothy has leaves on his legs and every-time one falls off- he is closer to leaving them.

In the end, they do end up with a child, but it is not Timothy who they end up parenting. Wanna find out more? You've got to see this touching compelling film, and all it's Special Features on Bluray now!

Buy it on Amazon for $27.89  a special price for the 2 disc BluRay + DVD combo pack!
You can also find other versions of this film for other prices too!
