"'I was born under unusual circumstances.' So begins the film adaptation of this 1920s story about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918 into the 21st century, a journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be. Directed by David Fincher from a screenplay by Eric Roth, screen story by Eric Roth and Robin Swicord"--Publisher's website. "The curious case of Benjamin Button" is a witty and fantistical satire about aging in one of Fitzgerald's most memorable stories.
