The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Release Date: December 25, 2008

“I was born under unusual circumstances.” And so begins “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man’s life can be. This sweeping film follows the character’s unusual life as he experiences joy and sadness, loves lost and found, and the meaning of timelessness.
