Genre: Romance/Drama/Fantasy

Starring: Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Julia Ormond, Faune Chambers

Thomas Button's wife gives birth to a baby boy while sacrificing her life. The child is born with a host of abnormalities. Wrinkled skin, arthritis, blood pressure, blurred vision, all signs of old age. The doctors don't think the child would survive for more than a day, and Mr Button thinking the child was the devil himself, left him at the doorstep of Dorothy Baker (Chambers) who runs an old age home. Benjamin (Pitt) unlike other people became younger day by day instead of growing older. He meets the love of his life Daisy (Blanchett) and goes on to marry her. The story simply narrates the life of Benjamin. It reflects on how a person with any form of abnormality cannot live a normal life and raise a normal family. The movies backdrop is Daisy lying on her deathbed and narrating the truth about her father to her daughter Caroline (Ormond) by making her read her fathers diary. The movie has a very sensitive and emotional touch to it and makes it a wonderful watch. One however needs patience and peace to watch the movie in one go.

Rating: 7.8/10
