The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The latest Brad Pitt project, in which he plays a man who ages in reverse, doesn't disappoint.

The story is peculiar in itself, but what I enjoyed most was the love story that slowly blossoms between him and Cate Blanchett.

Yes, it's true, the movie is very long and I understand how some people might find it boring, but I thought the acting and the marvel of seeing a person aging backwards so believably in front of my eyes were astounding.

Besides Pitt and Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson does an amazing job as Benjamin's adoptive mother, and Tilda Swinton is superb as usual.

The film's technical apparatus is first class, especially makeup and cinematography. I would suggest you check it out. I liked it.

Grade: 8
