I first saw the trailer of this movie two months ago. I thought it was The Time Traveller’s Wife, because it has the same premise. Until I saw Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt (Time Traveller’s Wife has Eric Bana and Rachel Adams). This is directed by David Fincher, who also directed Brad Pitt in his earlier films Se7en and The Fight Club. The movie I am talking about is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
The movie is loosely based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The gist of the story is that Benjamin Button has a condition where he looks old (wrinkles and all) when he was young, and looks younger when he gets old.
Critics are saying that this might be Brad Pitt’s ticket to Oscars next year. The movie is slated to open in the US on Christmas Day 2008.
