Sinopsis:

"Nací en circunstancias inusuales". Así comienza "El curioso caso de Benjamin Button", una adaptación de la historia de los años 20 del siglo pasado escrita por F. Scott Fitzgerald y que trata de un hombre que nace con ochenta años y va rejuveneciendo con el tiempo: un hombre que, como cualquiera de nosotros, no puede parar el tiempo. Desde la Nueva Orleans de finales de la I Guerra Mundial hasta el siglo XXI, en un viaje tan inusual como la vida de cualquier hombre, esta película cuenta la gran historia de un hombre no tan ordinario y la gente que va conociendo por el camino, los amores que encuentra y que pierde, las alegrías de la vida y la tristeza de la muerte, y que perduran más allá del tiempo.
