The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
- Awards: 13 Academy Award Nominations (Won 3)
This film is incredibly well done and tells a truly remarkable story that has now become pretty iconic. The film is about a man that is essentially aging backward. He is born old, and slowly as he “grows up,” he becomes younger. While most of us age up and will show that as the number jumps up, Benjamin Button is only getting younger. This also means that as he gets to his oldest age, he will eventually die in a newborn’s body. Brad Pitt proves how inhuman he is, as he plays Benjamin at every age even to a point that he is believably appearing in his 20s when he was around 43 or 44 at the time of filming.
