The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Now this is a great movie.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett where a man is born old and ages in reverse. Imagine being in your 50's and looking like a teenager.

I really pity the life Benjamin Button lived. He never got to enjoy his childhood because he looked old, and when he was getting older he was looking more and more younger. He saw how the people around him were getting older and dying but he was in reverse.

He and Cate Blanchett eventually have a daughter whom Brad Pitt chooses to leave because "she needs a father, not a playmate." He eventually returns, but under different circumstances.

The story is told from the journal of Benjamin Button, whom his unknowing daughter reads out to her mother's deathbed. I loved how the movie progressed in story, and how Benjamin began to lose everyone around him, and how he kept looking younger and younger and younger. Imagine Brad Pitt in his teens. Yum.

With everything said, this is a movie that you really should watch. I won't spoil the ending for everyone who hasn't watched the movie yet, but really, go watch it.
