The Odd Life of Timothy Green 

 

The Odd Life of Timothy Green is aptly named. This movie is more than a little different. It also takes some time to get going. But once it does, it ties most of the loose ends nicely. There are still a few questions I have. I guess a movie needs to keep some of its mystery.

This couple (Cindy and Jim) wants to have a child. They want it so badly they do all of the medical procedures they can. Eventually a doctor tells them it will not be happening. So as they deal with this grief, they imagine what their child would be like. They put it all down on pieces of paper, and bury it in a box in their back yard.

A nasty rain storm hits just their house, and a young ten year old boy Timothy shows up in their house. There is a giant crater in the back yard garden where their buried box once was. Timothy has leaves growing out of his legs (where socks can cover them up). He calls Cindy and Jim, mom and dad. Warning: spoilers are coming up in my review.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green never does explain where Timothy actually comes from, or where he eventually does go. Which to me is one of the oddest things. The couple never really questions it. They call him their miracle, but they are not shown praying or going to a pastor/church.

The whole point of The Odd Life of Timothy Green is this couple of telling this story to a social worker because they now want to adopt. They use this story as an explanation of how and why they are qualified to be a parent. The Odd Life of Timothy Green preaches against living your life through your children.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green spends a lot of time on how flawed and imperfect parents are. It does not spend as much time explaining how flawed and imperfect kids are. The Odd Life of Timothy Green also has a slight environmentalists undertone. Save the trees by making pencils out of leaves.

Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Blu-ray + DVD combo pack of The Odd Life of Timothy Green. The music video is an interesting extra to me, as well as This is Family, and The Gift of Music. The Odd Life of Timothy Green takes a stance on how far family extends. You might agree or disagree on the opinion expressed on these discs.
