The Curious Case…


I was browsing through some movie trailers earlier today and decided to watch the second trailer to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, because I haven’t seen it in a while.  David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac), who recently completed the film over the summer, collaborated  adapted the F. Scott Fitzgerald story of the same name.  The plot revolves around a man (or child?) played by Brad Pitt who, unlike everybody else in the world, begins his life well into his eighties and proceeds to age backwards.  We follow his life from 1918 (The end of World War I) all the way into the 21st Century, where he experiences life, love and like everyone else, death.  From what I’ve seen so far in the two trailers, I have to say that this movie could quite possibly be one of the most fantastic movies of the year.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button also stars Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton and is set to be released this Christmas.
