One of 2008’s most enchanting films comes from a very unlikely source: Director David Fincher, in his third film with Brad Pitt, proves he can warm hearts with the best of them. This is a movie that puts a spell over you for nearly three hours, telling the tale of Benjamin (Pitt), born an 80-year-old baby who ages backward. Over the course of the film, we see an elderly baby grow in size, eventually turning into the Brad Pitt we all know, then shrinking into infancy. His reverse aging is a wonder to behold, especially when the elderly character is the size of a 10-year-old. It’s a tremendous cinematic achievement, with a decent love story (co-starring Cate Blanchett) at its center.
