Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett and heart-throb Brad Pitt pair up again following the success of their work on Babel in 2006. In The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, they play a loving couple suffering from a serious age gap. Pitt plays Benjamin Button, a man with a curious condition which causes him to age in reverse. His mother dies giving birth to him. His father, repulsed by a baby who looks like an old man, abandons his son on the stairs of an old people's home. Queenie, who works at the home, adopts the baby and names him. Benjamin meets Daisy (Blanchett), the granddaughter of one of the home's residents when he's a teenager (and looks like a 70-year-old), and it's love at first sight. The rest of the film tracks their relationship. What the film lacks in unpredictability, it makes up for in amazing makeup and visual effects, and stunning performances. The only disappointment is that the movie, based loosely on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, opens in almost exactly the same way as Titanic - it's a shame the screenwriter couldn't come up with a more creative idea. If you like Pitt, buy this. Although he starts out looking like a grandfather, his disease soon turns him into a motorbike-riding hottie.
