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.

With a premise based on the fact a little boy literally pops out of the ground and joins a family, The Odd Life of Timothy Green was never going to be a summer blockbuster. Wowing the audience with visual effects is not really what director Peter Hedges usually goes for, which is totally fine in my book. If you did miss The Odd Life of Timothy Green during its theatrical release, you’ll be able to catch the film when it comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on December 4.
