The curious case of Benjamin Button is a David Fincher ´s film. The main actors are Brad Pitt,Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton. Brad Pitt acts as Benjamin Button, Cate Blanchett as 
Daisy and Tilda Swinton as Elizabeth Abbott. It is a drama film.

Daisy Williams, an old woman, was in her deathbed in a New Orleans hospital the day that hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans. Near her was her daughter, Caroline. Daisy asked her daughter to read to her the diary of Benjamin Button. This diary tells his complete an extraordinary life, all the diseases he has been diagnosed at birth and the little chance of survival. Thomas Button, his father, abandoned him after the death of his mother. He was raised by a black woman called Queenie. Daisy´s grandmother lived at that home, which is where she first met Benjamin.

This movie is visually remarkable thanks to some groundbreaking special effects. Near the end of the films, Benjamin appears after a long absence and steps into the light looking really young. The special effects were so elaborate and seamlessly integrated that they went virtually unnoticed.

In this movie, the clothing is very beautiful. To make sure they got the clothing right for all the different time periods, the costume designers consulted with Levi´s and used their Vintage clothing line. Nothing could get between the filmmakers and their Levi´s.

In my opinion, Benjamin Button is a long movie, but is like a pleasant dream, with fine acting all around. The special effects are amazing. I applaud the acting of Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button. I think it is the best movie I have ever seen in my short life.
