Based on the books by Stephan Pastis, the Disney+ Original marks director Tom McCarthy’s awaited followup to his Best Picture Oscar-winner Spotlight. The films are so different, you might not immediately make the connection between them; but on a closer look, their shared understated approaches and, in some ways, complimentary themes begin to stand out. Timmy Failure explores how kids use their imaginations as a buffer against the hardships of growing up in ways that are funny, smart, and heartfelt.
