Tonight, Jennifer and I watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Now, I had heard it was a lot like Forrest Gump, but I didn't see that at all beyond the movie being set in New Orleans. However, knowing the premise of the movie I thought it would be a rip off of The Confessions of Max Tivoli: A Novel, by Andrew Sean Greer which is the story of a man who ages backwards.
However, at the end of the movie we learned that the movie was based off of a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. So more like Max Tivoli was inspired by the original short story of Benjamin Button.
The movie itself we found touching and enjoyable. Two hours and forty minutes went by extremely fast.
