THE CU­RI­OUS CASE OF BEN­JAMIN BUT­TON (2008) GEM, 8.40PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

FightClub di­rec­tor David Fincher again teams up with Brad Pitt to spin an­other sur­real tale, this time based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzger­ald. Born as an old man who grows younger with the pas­sage of time, the life of Ben­jamin But­ton (Pitt) is an in­ter­est­ing study of the way we de­velop per­son­ally and so­cially. It’s also full of com­plex­i­ties, par­tic­u­larly where ro­mance is in­volved. The main love in­ter­est, Daisy (Cate Blanchett), meets old man But­ton when she is a young girl, and joy and anguish punc­tu­ate their lives as their ages con­verge and then sep­a­rate. ★★★★

Time warp: Brad Pitt turns the clock around in TheCu­ri­ousCase­ofBen­jam­inBut­ton.
