The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button David Fincher goes all mushy-wushy. And it's terrific
Plot Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) is a boy born with the biology of a pensioner… As he grows up, he grows younger, and falls in love with Daisy (Cate Blanchett). Can their romance survive his curious condition? Verdict Aptly for a film so concerned with time, Button is 13 minutes shy of three hours and just flies by. If this is Fincher selling out, can he sell out more often please? Reviewed by Ian Freer
