Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Lovely.

    ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ is a well intentioned – if, indeed, odd – 2012 film from Disney. CJ Adams gives a respectable and sweet performance as Timothy, while Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton bring the heart in their roles as Cindy and James. The other characters are absolutely terrible, I will say that – especially Rosemarie DeWitt’s Brenda.

    What it severely lacks in a supporting cast, it makes up for with its hearty narrative and nicely paced story. I don’t think it’s perfect or anything close, but it brings the feels that it intended to bring. Definitely worth a watch.
