I’m not going to waste time with this one..
What a CUTE movie!!!
I know.. that’s a simple statement to make and I will definitely go into more details, but that was my first thought after watching The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
I went into watching this movie with a little apprehension. I don’t like movies that are so far out there with the storyline that it’s just strange, but The Odd Life of Timothy Green isn’t like that.
The storyline, different yes, but done is such a beautiful way, that you just automatically get wrapped into it.
FAMILY. The importance and love of family. ACCEPTANCE. Accepting and loving people for who they are. These are two things I took from this film.
The Odd Life of Timothy paints a beautiful picture of how family, though it may be not the ‘norm’ or perfect thing we picture or dream it to be, can be something amazing.
Timothy comes into Cindy and Jims life in a very interesting way and at a time where all hope for a family is lost for them. Though definitely thrown at first, Cindy and Jim embrace Timothy and are thrilled to have him as their son, especially since he’s everything they ‘dreamed’ of.
As Timothy touches different peoples lives, you become quickly aware that he was brought into their lives for a purpose. Even through his mistakes or mishaps, Timothy teaches those around him different life lessons through his simple acts.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a wonderful family film that I don’t think got the attention it deserved, and I definitely recommend it for a family movie night in your home.
