It's a heartbreaking reality that some loving couples cannot conceive a child, no matter how much medical assistance they receive. In the altered reality of Disney films, however, there's an option when science proves incapable: a wish box and some magic.
In "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton star as the couple who, when told by their doctor that a baby of their own blood was not possible, go the supernatural route. A few drinks into that sad night, they put together a wish list of qualities for the child they could not have, put them in a box and bury it. A storm and unexplained phenomena later, a child just, poof, appears like that.
Here's the catch: the child is about seven years old, with absolutely no memory.
"He doesn't have any emotional memories," Garner told USA Today. "He's completely naïve to the way the world works ... someone who's honest to a fault is called honest to a fault for a reason."
The film hits in August, 2012; check out the trailer below.
