    At once epic in scope and intimate in detail, David Fincher's THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON is certainly the director's most emotional film to date (though FIGHT CLUB and SEVEN don't offer much in the way of competition). Loosely based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald story, this romantic drama tells the tale of Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt), born in 1918 in New Orleans as a baby with wrinkles, cataracts, and arthritis. Benjamin will age backwards, getting younger as he watches those around him growing older. Included in that group are his adoptive mother, Queenie (Taraji P. Henson), and Daisy (Cate Blanchett), the love of his life whom he meets when she is just a little girl and he is an old man. They age in reverse, but despite Benjamin's globe-trotting adventures, their lives repeatedly intersect. The script from Oscar winner Eric Roth bears more than a few hallmarks in common with his earlier work on FORREST GUMP: both adaptations cross decades and continents. But BENJAMIN's script or even the fine acting aren't its most impressive accomplishment; the technology--both CGI and makeup--used to make Benjamin and Daisy age are remarkable, and makes the film entirely believable, but they're certainly aided by fine performances from both Pitt and Blanchett. The triumph of technology only serves to underscore the beauty of this film and of the love story at its heart.

    • Very Happy

      THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON was a great movie which I ordered for my daughter 10 days before Christmas. I received it in time for Christmas morning at regular shipping and was very happy with my complete order from Overstock. The DVD was in perfect working order! I will order again!

    • Loved this movie!

      I absolutely adore this movie and consider it one of Brad's best. He deserved the Oscar nod that came along with being a part of this. Al though the movie is lengthy (and I did have some gripes about the time spent analyzing his early life), once Benjamin started to transition into the "real Brad" I loved it. This is one of my favorite movies and I would recommend it to anyone who loves Brad Pitt.
