Growing up the magic of the movies was something we all looked forward to from those cliff-hangars and twists, the talking dogs, the magical cats, and they all drew us in and looking forward to watching them on the silver screen.
Once again, Walt Disney Studios does not disappoint with this new tale about a couple who long for a family but cannot have one, so they dream about what it would be like, what having a son would be like. Jennifer Garner is wonderful in this scene with her movie husband as they “live” the wishes they write down for their future in “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” In this clip below, Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (“Dan in Real Life,” What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”) delivers the magic we’re talking about with this story written by Ahmet Zappa.
Watch this clip to get a feel for their dreams and what comes from them.
Watch for the movie “the Odd Life of Timothy Green” coming next summer and meet young Timothy (CJ Adams) when he shows up on the Green’s doorstep one stormy night, and prove to Cindy and Jim Green that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
