Benjamin Button is a strange man. Born a baby with the body of a 100 year old man, Benjamin ages backwards. Viewed as a freak through much of his life, his early attempts to play with those that are the same age – mentally – as he are met with scorn and disgust. The film follows Benjamin's life as he ages in reverse, growing up and becoming a young man with all the wisdom and experience of someone four times his physical age. This allows Benjamin to find happiness in the end, before finally turning into an infant at the end of his life and being taken in by the woman he loved.
