Plot & Details

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.
