Recently released in full bloom, just in-time for the holidays onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, High Definition Digital & On-Demand, The Odd Life of Timothy Green (written and directed by Peter Hedges) is the story of a young couple, Cindy (Jennifer Garner) and Jim (Joel Edgerton), who have tried for years without success to conceive a child. The film opens with them discussing the possibilities of adoption with an agency. They’ve neglected to fill out the section where they tell what qualifies them to be parents because they feel it’s a story they need to tell in person in order for it to be believed.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a heartwarming and thought-provoking film about family, and a shinning example that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts. I laughed, I cried and I truly enjoyed the experience of this movie. I enjoyed seeing it on the big screen, and even more so at home with my family. Making a great addition to my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green Blu-ray Combo Pack includes never-before-seen bonus features, including the 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; “Glen Hansard: Behind ‘This Gift” – the Academy Award® winning songwriter tells how he and Marketa Irglova crafted the moving end-credits song; “This Gift” Music Video by Glen Hansard; Five all-new deleted scenes; and always a favorite of mine, a director audio-commentary.

In celebration of The Odd Life of Timothy Green being released in to theaters, I had pleasure of joining a select group of bloggers for a live Q&A with actress Jennifer Garner. You can revisit that Q&A here on my blog.
