Joel Edgerton thinks 'The Odd Life of Timothy Green' is like ''real life with magic dust''.
The Australian actor - who stars opposite Jennifer Garner in Peter Hedges' heartfelt family film - is glad the film isn't ''cool'' and thinks the message comes across strongly thanks to the magical realism.
Joel praised director Pete's innovative film, telling MoviesOnline.com: ''He hasn't tried to be cool. He hasn't tried to be anything that he thinks a movie-going public might want, and it's unique in that sense because it kind of strips the skin off.
Day one of Lollapalooza went by yesterday and was a massive success as the headline slots on the Bud Light and Red Bull Soundstage stages were black as night, with veteran rockers Black Sabbath and US rock heroes The Black Keys topping the bill on the respective stages.
Perhaps the best thing about the whole day was the coming together of such unlikely musicians, with Sabbath playing along with electro heavyweights like Nero and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and hip hop stars like Wale. The Chicago-based festival has long been commended for it's all-encompassing philosophy and willingness to play just about any genre of music and it's good to know that after 15 active years the festival still follows it's values.
Whilst Sabbath and the Keys took care of headlining duties, it was up to Uk-trio Animal Kingdom to get the ball rolling on what was their first appearance at the festival. Fellow Brit Michael Kiwanuka also took to the stage later on, importing his soulful sounds to American ears for potentially the first time for many of the audience.
The rest of the day was a miss-mash of genres; with newly revived Portland band The Shins, unlikely chart invader M83 and dubstep progressionist SBTRKT each taking their to their slots with much gusto.

Get set for Avatar The Theme-Park Ride. The Walt Disney Co. announced on Tuesday that it has reached an agreement with director James Cameron, his producing partner Jon Landau, and 20th Century Fox to develop a theme-park ride based on Cameron's movie at Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Work on the project is expected to begin in 2013, with an expected opening in 2016. And if you thought the $250-million budget of the movie was expensive, it will seem like nothing compared with the jaw-dropping $500 million that the Avatar ride is expected to cost. In an interview with today's (Wednesday) Los Angeles Times, Cameron said that he is already tossing ideas around with Disney's Imagineering staff. He said he has been "looking at all the technologies that they have developed that they're champing at the bit to use to bring Pandora to life _ the creatures ... culture, a general sense of the future, the overall human relationship to nature, which fits thematically so well with the Animal Kingdom." The Times said that Disney is also considering bringing " Avatar- themed attractions" to Disney theme parks in Paris and Hong Kong.
