The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Single-Disc Edition)STARRING:
Brad Pitt
Taraji P. Henson
Cate Blanchett

In 1918 a baby is born who is physically like an 80 year old man. As he grows he continually gets younger and essentially lives his life backwards.

This is a very touching film about seeing the world through the eyes of someone who is very unique. Benjamin wants to live a normal life but realizes that he can't and has to make some tough decisions. Many asexuals will relate to that element of the story. This isn't an asexual film though. There is plenty of sex involved in the story but fortunately it isn't graphically portrayed.

MY RATING: 10/10

Cate Blanchett with a southern accent FTW; but Benjamin Button kept dragging on, always pausing dramatically on Brad Pitt's face, a lot like Meet Joe Black, FTL
