On Christmas Day I had the chance to see "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
It's based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story about a man born old who grows younger as his life proceeds.
An interesting concept turned into a beautiful and charming movie. Epic in its sweep and clocking in a 2 hours and 47 minutes, it didn't seem long to me.
Stretching from the end of WWI to the onset of Hurricane Katrina, this movie sure makes New Orleans look like a lovely place to live.
No wonder it garnered 5 Golden Globe nominations.
