The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

“I was born under unusual circumstances.”

And so begins The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. A man, like any of us, unable to stop time. We follow his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man’s life can be. Directed by David Fincher, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a time traveler’s tale of the people and places he bumps into along the way, the loves he loses and finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

      Hi Alexander,

      I am curious as to why you want them. I have them still attached to each show, but on the website they are invisible currently. Is it so you can find them easier?
