There's a lot to like about The Odd Life of Timothy Green
. You can easily cite the chemistry between its talented leads, Jennifer Garner
and Joel Edgerton
, the ridiculously adorable CJ Adams
in his first starring role or find appreciation in seeing how pencils are made from start to quality controlled finish. For all of its winning factors, writer/director Peter Hedges
(‘Dan in Real Life’, ‘What's Eating Gilbert Grape’) also achieved the impressive task of utilizing a classic 1975 War song as an unexpected but appropriate Green family scene-stealer.
