The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

"I was born under unsual circumstances...thus begins the Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Academy Award Winning film starring Brad Pitt as a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. Cate Blanchett as the woman he is destined to love forever. TCCOBB is a monumental journey - as unusual as it is epic - that follows Benjamins remarkable adventure of romance and redemption from the end of world war one through the 21st century. winner of three academy awards." (from the back of the movie cover)

I saw this movie ages ago, and I just recently bought it. and it just felt so worthy of Blogging that I decided to do it even though it's old - its fairly new I know some of you still havent seen it.

this is such a brillant movie. from the original concept of the plot, to the acting, to the makeup and wardrobe. its just amazing

its a very long movie to go through an entire life tide into the story of the woman in the hospital bed telling the story to her daughter. i LOVED that they tied in New Orleans in such a specific way and I'm sure that was Brad Pitt's doing - also i'm sure they shot everything in Louisiana to help try and rebuild it.

its a beautiful love story mixed in with this thought provoking idea about life and death and growing old and growing young and responsibility and to live carefree, i think your life grows by seeing this movie.
