Now playing, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, based on an idea by Ahmet Zappa (he also produces the movie), centers on a loving couple (Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Garner) who desperately want to start a family. CJ Adams is the boy who pops outside their doorstep one evening, thus fulfilling their deepest wish.
The film is directed by Peter Hedges, a storyteller who loves weaving narratives that center on the family dynamic (Pieces of April, Dan in Real Life).
“Peter, I think, was trying to make a movie for adults,” says Edgerton, who starred last year with Tom Hardy in Warrior. “For parents, and for children, but primarily for adults. I love the tone of the movie. I love that it’s warm and charming and it’s got a lot of soft edges to it, but it’s got a very open heart.”
