Spling’s Galileo Pick of the Week: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button @ V&A Waterfront (29 Mar)

The high concept fantasy drama, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, follows a man aging in reverse. Eric Roth’s story is original, inspiring and captivating in the way it unfolds on screen. The thought-provoking and fascinating tale is realised through amazing special effects, costume and make up, allowing Button to age in an extraordinarily ordinary fashion. 

Master film-maker, David Fincher, brings an overall shimmer and quality to the production, turning it from an oddity into a curious and spellbinding tale. The film is further cemented by Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, a strong and wistful pairing, who are more than up to the task. 

This elegant and magical fantasy drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
