Spill.com recently reviewed the film “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” by director David Fincher (Heavy Metal, Zodiac) and starring Brad Pitt (Dirty Tricks, Burn After Reading), Cate Blanchett (The Fantastic Mr. Fox) and Tilda Swinton (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian).
Synopsis: David Fincher’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story, re-teams the director with Brad Pitt, who takes on the title role. What makes Button such a curious case is that when he is born in New Orleans just after World War I, he is already in his eighties, and proceeds to live his life aging in reverse. This sweeping film follows the character’s unusual life into the 21st century as he experiences joy and sadness, loves lost and found, and the meaning of timelessness. Cate Blanchett co-stars along with Tilda Swinton, Elias Koteas, and Julia Ormond. – Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
