The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) is a man who ages backwards. Along the way, he meets people that leave a mark on him and mold him to the man he would soon become. When he becomes romantically involved with a woman (Cate Blanchett), she changes him for the remainder of his years. They face one problem: How will they be able to maintain a healthy relationship when one grows older and the other grows younger. The plot of the film is attention grabbing and you don't even realize that over two and half hours has passed. After the movie was finished, I walked out with a sense of appreciation for the life and the people in it. It teaches us that we are not immortal and that we should be appreciative for the life and the people that will go out of their way to help us, no matter how bizarre the reason is. Go see this while it is still out on the big screen! I assure you that this movie will not disappoint. 3 and a half out of 4 stars.
