Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green comes out in a couple of weeks (August 15th) and I’m really excited.  As much as I love Disney animation, every now and then I like to see a live-action movie that has been sprinkled with pixie dust.  This movie feels like it will deliver on the magic.

Jennifer Garner and CJ Adams in The Odd Life of Timothy Green

The Odd Life of Timothy Green is the story of Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), a married couple who very much want to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like.  Then Timothy (CJ Adams) – a very unusual boy with leaves growing out of his shins and ankles – shows up on their doorstep during a storm one night.  Timothy shows Cindy and Jim, and the entire town of Stanleyville, that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.

If you’re not familiar with the movie yet, be sure to watch the trailer above.  Be prepared to have your heart touched!
