The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a drama fantasy film enriched with an enchanting story of love and adventure. It is a unique account of reverse aging where Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) is born with elderly characteristics and comes to know Daisy Fuller (Cate Blanchett) at the nursing home he lives at with his adoptive parents who are on the staff there, and where Daisy visits her grandmother who is a resident. Pitt and Blanchett have inherent screen chemistry which sees them teamed up again having previously starred together in the 2006 film Babel. The narrative is multilayered with both Daisy and Benjamin having their own tangents yet they come together and shift apart at several junctions in the movie. It is a unique film that is very satisfying with a masterfully constructed story. Please refer to this link to purchase a copy of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
