The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the movie I have chosen to review today. It was made in 2008 so it is an older movie, but the movie is interesting. It isn't often that Hollywood makes a movie about a button. It opened the door for other movies about sewing notions. If Brad Pitt had refused the button part, my guess is that the movie Zipper (2015) would never have been made. Cate Blanchett starred with Brad Pitt.
This movie is quite revolutionary. It isn't often that people.get to see life from a Button's point of view. This might have been more accepted if it was one of those political buttons or one that supports a cause with a built in pin. This button is an ordinary button that fits into a buttonhole and keeps a garment together. I have seen buttons shaped like seashells, cars, cute animals, and other motifs. Many are plastic, but they are also made from other materials like brass and wood. The movie is not about one of those fancy buttons. It us just a circular plastic button which was nothing special. The movie has a message and that message is (in my opinion), one does not have to be fancy to live a useful life. What would the humans do without plain, ordinary buttons? I give this movie a tail wag, a kiss, and a wolf wolf. The humans give it a vest which is higher than a shirt, but lower than a suit coat.
