by (Author)

  • 9,143 Words

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who ages in reverse: He is born a feeble 70-year-old and becomes younger as the years progress. This faithful graphic-novel adaptation chronicles Benjamin Button's many adventures: He falls in love with a woman who ages normally (this causes complications), starts a family, and establishes a successful business. In his later years, he attends Harvard as a student and plays on their football team. By the time he is an old man, Benjamin Button resembles a newborn baby. And then he remembered nothing.Through the noons and nights he breathed and over him there were soft mumblings and murmurings that he scarcely heard, and faintly differentiated smells, and light and darkness. The Hollywood adaptation of the story-starring Brad Pitt (as Benjamin Button), Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swenton, and Julia Ormond, and directed by David Fincher (who also directed Pitt in "Fight Club" and "Seven")

    The story line was not as exciting as it could have been. It was written well, but I liked the movie better.

    Better than the film!
