THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button—based on a 1922 F. Scott Fitzgerald story—presents its unusual story tastefully and well via the talents of Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. The storyline is difficult to ignore due to its uniqueness. While not a movie that attains classic status, it’s worth watching.

Storyline

Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) comes into the world as an old man and leaves the world as a young infant.
