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