The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Based on a little-known short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Benjamin Button is a Magical Realist romance-cum-20th century biography. Brad Pitt is a fellow born withered and decrepit at the close of World War I. Miraculously, as the decades wear on, our protagonist grows younger and healthier. Eventually, he goes out and experiences all the world has to offer. Less about life and more about the ticking clock of mortality, this sweeping drama delivers a bittersweet dose of melancholy. 159 minutes PG-13.
