Synopsis

What's so curious about Benjamin Button is that he is a man living his life backwards. Brad Pitt teams up again with director David Fincher to star in this adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald's short story about a man born in post-World War I New Orleans as an eighty year old, and who then starts to grow younger as all around him age. The sweeping story shows how Benjamin's condition give him a unique perspective on 20th century events, and is also an epic romance between him and the love of his life, Daisy, which transcends the tragedy of two lives led in opposite directions.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
