Known Trivia

  • The role of Cindy was offered to Sandra Bullock, who turned it down.
  • Filmed in the same house as Halloween II.
  • Though Stanleyville is described as a town in the Midwest, the movie was filmed in parts of Georgia, including Monroe and Rex, which is reflected in several of the streets named for Confederate generals.
  • In an interview, CJ Adams said that he was 10 at the time of filming, “just before my [11th] birthday [in 2011]”. In the same interview, he said that the movie poster of the title character’s legs with leaves growing from them were not his but a body double’s.

Goofs: Continuity: In the soccer championship, when Jim and Cindy are urging Timothy to move his feet, the same background actor is seen simultaneously behind the couple and behind Timothy. Later, when the game is over, the same background actor is seen behind Jim and Cindy and then celebrating on the other side of the field at the goal.

Plot: A childless couple bury a box in their backyard, containing all of their wishes for an infant. Soon, a child is born, though Timothy Green is not all that he appears. Full summary » |  »

Story: After receiving bad news from a fertility doctor, Cindy and Jim Green try to bury their dreams of having a child by writing out all the great traits their child would have and putting them in a box in the garden. During a freak storm in the middle of the night, they awake to find a boy named Timothy, with leaves growing from his ankles, standing in their kitchen calling them mom and dad. Cindy and Jim are thrown into the midst of parenthood and over the coming months, Timothy will teach them more than they could have imagined about being parents and raising a child, no matter how he comes into their lives.Written by napierslogs
