The story's narrator is Daisy's daughter played by Julie Ormond - from Sabrina with Harrison Ford - I loved that she has aged - it makes me feel better as I age too. She reads from Benjamin's journal as Hurricane Katrina bears down on the Gulf coast to her mother (Daisy) during her last minutes of life on this earth.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button PG-13 for brief war violence, sexual content, language and smoking. Following a brief scene of childbirth, a baby is abandoned by his father and raised in a home for the elderly. Benjamin visits a brothel and hires a prostitute. He also goes to a bar where he drinks. Comments are made about unmarried and lesbian relationships. There are bodies in the ocean killed during a battle with enemy soldiers.
Benjamin knows he's different from the other house occupants and Queenie never lets him forget it. Growing stronger and more agile with time, Benjamin's body may look old but he has a childlike curiosity and is intrigued by the young granddaughter, Daisy of one of the women in the care center.
Despite their bodies age differences, Benjamin and the redheaded Daisy, become good friends. He and Daisy found each other again and the love story began. One that couldn't last forever, because Benjamin will get younger and Daisy will get older. I loved the fun and love they had together - aaaahhhhh - only to dream of a love like that - without the heart break though.
