WHOO! Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green comes out TOMORROW – August 15th!! I am SUPER excited & hope we can go see it soon. I was invited to attend the pre-screening event in NYC last week and something came up last minute and I wasn’t able to go – boo!! I haven’t been this excited about a movie since The Help came out last year! Here’s the synopsis in case you haven’t heard of this movie:
Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (“Dan in Real Life,” What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”) brings enchantment to the screen with “The Odd Life ofTimothy Green,” an inspiring, magical story about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim—and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
When young Timothy suddenly comes into the lives of Cindy and Jim Green, they learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
Q & A Interview with Jennifer Garner!
It was just awesome getting to join in with a Q & A session with actress Jennifer Garner – she is so down to earth, so sweet, and really passionate about loving what she does! Since I couldn’t possibly type as fast as everyone was chatting the following questions (in bold) and answers (in italics) are slightly paraphased but the original expression has not changed.
What do you want the audience to take away from this movie?
I want the audience to be entertained and have a good time. Kids laugh a lot & think the movie is for them, and the adults think the movie for them so that is a pretty good recipe to me. My advice is to judge ourselves less as moms, we’re all trying our hardest and that is ok.
Does this movie end on a happy note?
Yes, it’s a bittersweet note, but you might cry.
If you could meet any person, dead or alive, who would you want to meet?
I would want to meet someone who was really changed history in our country. Someone like Thomas jefferson so I can ask him how it felt to sign the Declaration of Independance or Abraham Lincoln.
What advice would you give to new moms?
Everything is a phase, the good stuff is a phase so enjoy it. The tough stuff is a phase so just get through it – you don’t have to fix it.
