This movie was amazing on so many different levels. The first 20 minutes or so were very slow, but from then on it started to become one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the story of a man that ages backwards, and the story of what he goes through. This movie is 3 hours long, but it seems to go by very quickly. It is based from around 1920 - 2002. It is a visually appealing story with a great cast and great acting. This is not a movie that you see and forget about within the month, this is a movie that you will cherish for a longer period of time. There are many bizarre consequences that happen to Benjamin because he ages backwards, but that is to be expected to a man that ages backwards. I recommend this movie to anyone wanting to see a meaningful movie that may change their perspective of things. This movie gives out a clear message of "Life is short, so be who you are."
