Angelina Jolie’s “man-candy,” Brad Pitt stars one of the holiday season’s most anticipated films when he portrays a man born “under unusual circumstances” in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

In the early 20th century, 80-year old Benjamin Button (Pitt), is born aging backwards (he was an old man as a baby and vice versa), causing complications when he falls in love with a 30 year old woman (Cate Blanchett). Director David Fincher said “It’s dark, it’s romantic, and it also deals with mortality in a pretty unflattering way. Button is born in 1919 – with the film itself beginning in World War I, traveling around the world and carrying on all the way through to the year 2000.”

The film features an all-star cast of ladies including Tilda Swinton, Taraji P. Henson, Julia Ormond, Elle Fanning and Pitt’s daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt.

Judging from the trailer, we’re sure that there will be tears involved as the wonderful little fable will be heartbreaking.

The film opens nationwide on December 19.

Trailer grade: B+

i was pleasantly surprised to find out that F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the short story upon which Benjamin Button (the movie) was based, then mention this in the opening credits
