"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin

{Directed by David Fincher “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is a time traveler’s tale of the people and places he bumps into along the way, the loves he loses and finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

“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 (Brad Pitt) who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. A man, like any of us, unable to stop time.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
has definitely lived up to all the hype. I love films that are beautifully told, i.e. American Beauty, Forrest Gump, Moulin Rouge, etc. While some films with this type of storytelling format can be boring, bland and predictable, Benjamin Button was anything but.

Nominated for 5 Golden Globe Awards and 3 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Button is a touching film worth seeing while still in theatres.
