One Response to: Best Picture History

Brad Pitt performs good the main role of Curious Case of Benjamin Button along with a particular air of likability such as he often does. While I experienced he does a fantastic job with the part, he didn’t have to do much…Benjamin, fittingly, is really a rather noiseless persona (I’d be willing to guess he talks in excess of he actually talks during the film). Regarding acting, the film is owned by the women, Cate Blanchett and Taraji P. Henson in particular. Though Blanchett might appear overrated to many, there is no question her unrivaled natural talent at playing a character as difficult and deep as Daisy, and she draws it off with ease and charm. Taraji P. Henson may heated your cardiovascular system as Benjamin’s mom, as she is funny, comfy, and supportive, so supportive that i felt almost like the lady had been my mommy.
