Jennifer Garner and CJ Adams grow on each other in The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

The family-oriented PG-rated movie tells the story of a young married couple (Garner and Edgerton) who are having fertility problems when it comes to having a baby. Dreaming of the possibilities, they bury a box in their backyard which contains all of their wishes for an infant. Soon, a child arrives on their doorstep—and he appears that he may have literally grown out of their garden! So, young Timothy Green (Adams) may be something more than he initially appears to be—and his strange arrival is further complicated by an impending economic downturn in the community.

Rated PG, The Odd Life of Timothy Green is written and directed by Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life) from a story penned by Ahmet Zappa.

The movie received generally acceptable reviews upon its wide release to theaters in August, 2012, garnering a 5.5/10 at Rotten Tomatoes based on 92 published notices. It ultimately rang up $50 million at the domestic box office.
