From Back Cover:
"I was born under unusual circumstances..."
Thus begins The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, the Academy Award-winning film starring Brad Pitt as a man who is born in his eighties and ages backward, and Cate Blanchett as the woman he is destined to love forever. The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button is a monumental journey - as unusual as it is epic - that follows Benjamin's remarkable adventure of romance and redemption from the end of World War I through the twenty-first century. Directed by David Fincher, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button is a powerful testament to life and death, love and loss.
A really beautiful love story with gorgeous, dream-like cinematography, a strong cast, and excellent make up and effects. It does run a bit long, though, so be prepared to devote an entire afternoon or evening to it.
