Dinner and a Movie

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

This movie is still playing at the theater. Be sure you have three hours to spare. The story starts as Brad Pitt is born an old man and he ages backwards. The story is based in the 1920's . Developed from F Scott Fitzgerald writtings. You will laugh and you will cry. Cate Blanchett plays one of Brad's love interests, she is always their to help him through his dificulities. This movie is rated PG-13 I would give this movie two and a half out of four stars.
