I kept hearing that The Odd Life of Timothy Green was one of the year’s most uplifting and enchanting family films, but I was a little leery to watch it because everyone kept telling me that I would cry my eyes out when I did. Being that The Odd Life of Timothy Green is the must-own family-film of 2012, I finally gave in and watched it this weekend...and I totally cried my eyes out.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green starred Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton as Jim and Cindy Green, a happily-married couple who desperately want to have their first child, but find out that they are unable to conceive. In an attempt to cheer his wife up, Jim tells her to write down all of the characteristics she wishes her child would have - essentially writing down what their dream child would be like. They bury the box in the backyard, but what happens next is where it gets interesting!
A storm strikes - only their house - and suddenly, a young boy shows up claiming to be their son. Jim and Cindy find the box with the slips of paper smashed up and there is a big hole where the box should have been. It becomes apparent just how little Timothy came to be, even if it was magic.
The Greens begin introducing Timothy to their family at a family picnic the next day and introduce him to their friend the botonist to help them with a slight issue they've found with Timothy...you see, he has leaves growing from his feet!
The movie was very touching, and I cried especially hard when we realized that each time Timothy fulfilled one of Cindy's wished-for characteristics, a leaf fell off and his time became less and less. To watch Cindy and Jim fall more and more in love with Timothy while knowing that he would soon leave them just broke my heart!
In the end, the Greens do have to say goodbye and Timothy is gone. But there is a surprise at the end...but you'll just have to find out what that is for yourself!
