Synopsis:
"I was born under unusual circumstances". And so begins The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any mans life can be. Benjamin Button is a grand tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

Very good short story - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button review by JD

Spoiler Alert
28/01/2010

The idea of living life backwards is novel and interesting. Lots of facets of this are explored but the plot does feel a bit thin in parts. Brad Pitt is one of the best action adventure hero actors of our time but doesn't really carry off more complex roles. The make up is good in parts but two scenes in particular are quite poor (you can definitely see the join). Worth watching but not transfixing.

slow and boring - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button review by tup

I expected a lot more from this film, it just plodded along and was rather boring. you may enjoy it, but I thought it was vastly over fated.
