The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

My Favorite Book of the Month – Movie of the Month:  “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

As a child Pablo Picasso was trained to paint like an adult.  As an adult he enjoyed painting like a child.

This makes me reflect on “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”  As Kate Blanchett describes  “You live your life forward, but you can only understand it backwards.”  This book and the movie are about accumulated family memories.  These memories are one step from our reality, but you come away with the belief that it could happen.  This is a deeply moving film.  Gentle, kind, full of love and all the wonders it holds. I would not be surprised at all if it won an Academy Award.  Please share your comments on the film.  I would love to hear your thoughts.
