Benjamin and his curious case
CJ and I had an opportunity to see a movie together today, so we chose The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, as I had wanted to see this, and he seemed interested. Our SIL Jill babysat Keifer, so off we went. I definitely liked the movie more than CJ - but he admitted it was a good story. Just a tad too long for his tastes. Although it did seem long (dragging on) I enjoyed the story itself and thought the cinematography and acting were wonderful. It was so amazing to watch how the had Brad Pitt age backwards, and Cate Blanchett is truly one of the most gifted and beautiful actresses of our time. Although I wasn't as enthralled with it as Slumdog Millionaire, I did like it. And I did find myself bawling through the ending, which I knew I would, but still. Hormones don't help!
