The instrumental music is soft and soothing...it's a joy to listen too. The biggest disappointment of this soundtrack is that it didn't include the last song, "The Gift" by Glen Hansard. That was the reason I bought the cd--expecting to get that song!! The list of songs/tracks should have been available to listen to before buying the cd. Thanks.

The family drama is a genre that has resulted in some amazing scores. I think people forget that in order for a score to be good it doesn't need to measure up to Gone With The Wind or The Mission, but service the film as best as it can. Geoff Zanelli happens to be one of my favorite composers who I've been listening to since the beginning of his composing career. I've listened to his sound shape and grow. His action scores are top notch fun, and his drama scores bring the heart. Somehow though it feels like something clicked with The Odd Life Of Timothy Green. This thematically sound score reaches deep, and I mean deep. The music flows with heart and the central motif anchors it to make it memorable. The characters and emotions come through as clear as they can for a score that resonates with the listener. The music feels personal and you can feel Geoff's voice in every note. It's this personal touch that makes The Odd Life Of Timothy Green something special, and Zanelli's most emotionally resonating work since The Pacific.

The film revolves around an infertile couple who plant their ideas of the perfect child in the ground. With a touch of Disney magic they have a little boy the next morning, but with an interesting physical trait. On his ankles he has some leafs, but imperfections and all he becomes the son they wanted. While the title of the film has Timothy Green in the title, it definitely centers on the parents. Their journey is what echos in the music. While Timothy's story arc is nice, it really doesn't have the weight of what the parents go through. Zanelli plays off of this and that's where his music stems from. The score has a "folk" feel to it with instruments like the accordion and even pencils for percussion (a plot reference).

This was a movie I wanted from the time it came out. No one in my family was interested in seeing it at the movies, so I ordered it. It came in very quickly, packaged well, and was in great condition. Thanks

I took my 80 year old Mother to see this movie. She hummed all the way through it even though she had never heard the music before.

We both commented how much we liked the musical score.
It was one we both wanted when it was available.

I saw this movie recently and was blown away by the original score. The films transitions fairly quickly from dramatic scenes to humorous ones, and back to terribly sad ones. The tonal shifts are helped along by the music, which seems to be there with us every step of the way. There are two themes in particular that are repeated throughout the film, and they felt like the perfect music to accompany this story.

The composer, Geoff Zanelli, is a very talented guy. A lot of his best work was done in collaboration with Hans Zimmer (ex. Zanelli contributed music to the Pirates of the Caribbean films and the Lone Ranger). But he seems to be taking more solo projects now, and "Timothy Green" is his greatest work to date. I'd recommend you purchase this soundtrack, and keep an eye out for Zanelli's future contributions to film music.

A couple of years ago I wrote a review of the soundtrack for the film Gamer, by Geoff Zanelli and Robb Williamson, in which I posted my now-famous `polar bear with a migraine' photo, and basically called it was one of the worst film scores I have ever heard in my life. Despite hating the music for that particular film, I was very careful not to criticize the composer himself, who was clearly providing exactly what the director and producer of that film wanted in terms music - which just happened to be music I cannot tolerate. A lot of us tend to forget, myself included sometimes, that a film composer's primary motivation is to support with music the director's vision of the film being made, and any secondary life the music takes on apart from the film is entirely inconsequential to the reason the music exists in the first place. A composer might be asked to write grating and grinding electronics for one film, as Zanelli was on Gamer, and a less-experienced critic might call him a hack, or whatever other derogatory terms spring to mind. But all composers, by necessity, have to be versatile, and Geoff Zanelli's versatility and talent is highlighted by his work on The Odd Life of Timothy Green, a film score at the other end of the musical spectrum from Gamer as it is possible to be.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a whimsical family drama directed by Peter Hedges and starring Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton as Cindy and Jim Green, a childless couple who dream of having a family of their own. After a night of drinking, having finally reconciled themselves to the fact that they will likely never have children, Cindy and Jim play a game where they write down all the qualities they would have wanted in a child, put the pieces of paper in a box, and bury the box in their back garden.
