While I felt he did a good job with the part, he didn't have to do much. Throughout life he goes through the same things we do, growing up and eventually growing old. Brad Pitt stars as Benjamin, a boy born an old man who must live his life in reverse. He strides into a garage in the mid-50's, decked out in leather jacket and shades, and whips a tarp off a motorcycle, on which he speeds out to the harbor to do some bare-chested sailing on a boat he builds himself the shades remain on his head. Henson will warm your heart as Benjamin's mother, as she's humorous, warm, and loving, so loving that I felt as if she was my mother. The film demands you to feel not only for the death we witness, but for the incredible life we discover.

Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages. Despite a long runtime, the film never drags. He winds this clock so well and with such grace that the movie has this undeniable flow that is enjoyable from start to finish. I know I've used the word 'magical' a lot in this review, and don't think it's on accident.
What makes our lives memorable are the moments we never seem to grasp long enough before letting go. Roth pointed out, Gump this ain't. The cinematography is superb and couples nicely with Fincher's style of accentuating certain colors to enhance a mood or moment. Subtitles in any language for your favourite movies. Immutable rule of humans is birth, aging, sickness and death, but Benjamin';s story is exactly the opposite.
At her side is her adult daughter, Caroline. When I first heard about this movie, I had to wonder. Fincher's epic explores our choices, lives, and the timelessness of life itself. If I had to point out one thing I would've liked to have seen a little more of, it would've been more of Benjamin as a little kid, as I felt that was rushed for those who don't know what I mean, I mean the last parts of the film when he's old, but his body is young. Synopsis On the day that Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans, elderly Daisy Williams nee Fuller is on her deathbed in a New Orleans hospital. Daisy's grandmother was a resident at that home, which is where she first met Benjamin. He spends a lifetime trying to understand how his love for Daisy works and still only gets a few incredible years really loving her.
We cut frequently, and irritatingly, back to a modern-day hospital in New Orleans, where a dying Daisy asks her daughter Julia Ormond to read to her from Benjamin's diary as Hurricane Katrina pounds on the windows. Brad Pitt and the marvelous Cate Blanchett share a fire that resonates so effortlessly out to the audience. He's a thoughtful observer, discovering life from all different angles. There are moments of joy and ecstasy followed by sorrow and understanding. Daisy asks Caroline to read to her aloud the diary of Daisy's lifelong friend, Benjamin Button.
However, in the end it's that very conceit that hamstrings an otherwise wondrous piece of movie-making. As their lives tell us, the years of frustration and hardship are all worth it if only for a few moments of happiness. But instead of letting us hear what those conversations are about, he simply creates a montage, set to music, of various meetings fading into one another.

How does one fall in love when he could one day appear young enough to be his spouse's child? Pitt leads with Blanchett and a strong performance from Taraji P. Along the time when people getting older, he';s increasingly younger.
You know it's there, obviously, but you can't tell it's being used. One thing that did surprise me in the film was the amount of comedy present, but I guess comedy's needed for a tale with such sorrow. It's a film to be cherished for ages. Alas, it was Christmas Day and you bet I was there to see the movie on opening day. It's not your average drama that spoon feeds it's audience their emotions. It prays on the obvious morality issues we all deal with but also dangles the idea in front of us that everyone goes through the same joys and grievances, just not in the same way.
It's a frustrating glimpse of what might have been, had the filmmakers chosen to put the character before the gimmick, instead of the other way around. His love is what makes him special. Bejamin from birth took the shape of an old man. This film will certainly earn comparisons to Robert Zemeckis' modern classic also written by Roth , but where that film had a truly fascinating central character, who experienced as many mistakes and tragedies as victories and happiness, Fincher and Roth's protagonist is a cipher. Which brings us to Cate Blanchett.

The cast does nothing wrong. I set my expectations really high on this film. Fincher does a tremendous job at maintaining a steady flow of action and dialogue. Unlike Benjamin, Daisy is not content to simply accept whatever life throws her way - she has dreams and attempts to act on them, and does her best to lead a normal, interesting life. After so much anticipation I was certainly not disappointed. It's from this diary whence springs Benjamin's narration, but, as Mr. It is something of awe and astonishment, an absolute gem.
