‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ Is Rooted in Love KIDS FIRST! Coming Attractions

Jack planted magic beans and grew a giant beanstalk. What Cindy and Jim Green plant is something more ephemeral – heartfelt dreams and desires – and what grows from that is even more special.  “Kids and parents can enjoy this movie because it shows a lot of imagination and a lot of love,” says KIDS FIRST! youth film critic Anthony Aranda, age 10, recommending it for all ages because there’s nothing scary in it, although the Motion Picture Association of America gives it the mildly cautionary PG rating. Audiences can expect to have their heartstrings tugged. Says KIDS FIRST! youth film critic Cheyenne Nguyen, age 8, “This movie emotion is like riding a roller coaster. I am laughing and crying during the same scene.” She gives particular kudos to CJ Adams, who plays Timothy Green, calling him “a great actor.”
