The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (David Fincher, 2008) will be screened on Thursday 29th October 2009 in the Studio Theatre. The film is a 12A certificate.
Set in New Orleans at the end of World War I in 1918, Brad Pitt stars as Benjamin Button – a man born in his eighties who ages backwards. An adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920’s novel, the film tracks Button’s life, through places he has visited to people he has loved and losses he has suffered. The movie questions what lies beyond death as Button ages into his childhood years, experiencing the joys of life but also the wrench of mortality. The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button won three Oscars at the 2009 awards.
