We did not see Disney’s latest Blu-ray DVD release, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, in the theaters but after watching the Blu-ray Combo Pack, High Definition Digital and On-Demand platforms I wish we had.
From Academy Award-nominated writer/director Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape), and starring Golden Globe® winner Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Oscar® winner Dianne Wiest and CJ Adams as Timothy Green, comes this highly imaginative story about a happily married couple who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. Then one stormy night young Timothy shows up on their doorstep. Soon they and the small town in which they live learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts. The story is written by Ahmet Zappa (“American Gangster,” “Changeling”).
Check out the trailer.
The DVD is pure magic.
It really is fantastic family friendly film where you pop some popcorn and cuddle up on the couch as you see Timothy weave magic and joy into this small town in 100 minutes. I love the story of a couple who cannot get pregnant and make notes of their perfect child to unexpectedly receive that perfect child by nature’s miracle. It’s funny to see as a parent what you wish coming true for the good or bad. The acting and directing are very good but the story is what is really entertaining.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green” Blu-ray Combo Pack can be enjoyed in English, French and Spanish and DVD features includes bonus features five deleted scenes, This Gift music video, director audio-commentary and documentary “Family Roots: Bringing ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ to the Screen,” which looks at this unique family story and the creative team that brought it to life.
