When Benjamin Button was born he had the appearance of seventy-year-old man, and he was already able to speak.
Stunned, his parents nevertheless try to raise him as they would any normal baby. By the time Benjamin is twelve, his parents realize their son is aging backwards, getting younger every day.
“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” was adapted for film in 2008, starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
