The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
In the early 20th century, a 80-year-old man (Brad Pitt) is born aging backwards, causing complications when he falls in love with a 30 year old woman (Cate Blanchett). Fincher said, ‘It’s dark, it’s romantic, and it also deals with mortality in a pretty unflattering way. The guy is born in 1919 – with the film itself beginning in world war I, travelling around the world and carrying on all the way through to the year 2000.
