I believe very much in the power of persuasion or for example The Secret. I you want something badly enough and you put positive thoughts into the atmosphere, it will come to you. This is sort of the plot behind Walt Disney World’s new movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
Cindy and Jim Green are willing to do anything for a child of their own, unfortunately it just isn’t to be. When their doctor gives them the final news they decide it is finally time to move on. But not before one final night of trying. I know what you’re thinking and that isn’t the type of trying I’m referring to. They try to envision their child. They write down all their child’s personality traits and place them inside a box and plant it in their garden for safe keeping. Then they go to sleep and and quite literally put their dream of parenthood to bed for good.
That is until a child winds up in their home, completely covered in mud, claiming his name is Timothy and he is their son. Oh and did I mention he has leaves growing from his legs and he says he came from the garden? However as far as the Green’s are concerned, who are they to question fate?
Timothy touches the lives of everyone he comes in contact with and teaches them that if you work hard at something you can achieve anything. But there is a lot more to Timothy than meets the eye, even with his obvious secret.
The Secret Life of Timothy Green was the quintessential “I laughed, I cried, It became a part of me” type of movie. I recommend it for kids 10 and up due to subject matter. I know my 7 year old son would have been bored. There were a lot of little kids talking during the movie and running around. It was just a bit old for them to concentrate during.
