The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
What a moviegoing experience we had this afternoon. Thank God movies like this still get made. Powerful acting, the New Orleans setting, a premise so odd and beautiful that it allows the exploration of the meaning of life, and narration that reminds you that this is the work of an artist.
This is a story of a 60 year love affair where two people find romance in the middle and a deep love that is timeless. The message and the mood were so well captured. Life is a precious gift, people who are aging are rich, not poor, no matter what our talents and challenges, we should make choices that keep us alive and loving.
It was a powerful experience, go see it.
