Tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.



The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Superbly made and winningly acted by Brad Pitt in his most impressive outing to date.
New York Post - Lou Lumenick
It takes a world-class storyteller and a great yarn to rivet your attention for nearly three hours. This very classy, old-school movie - employing cutting-edge technology that will make your eyes pop - did it for me.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
A curious case indeed: an extravagantly ambitious movie that's easy to admire but a challenge to love.
Newsweek - David Ansen
Lyrical, original, misshapen and deeply felt, this is one flawed beauty of a movie.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
There's no denying the film's power of compulsion and the sense that, when it's all over, it means something. Most viewers will be entertained and moved, and some will find their intellect aroused.
