I was delighted to find I really really enjoyed The Curious Case of Benjamin Button when I watched it a few days ago. I had wanted to see this film with well over a year and it really surpassed my expectations, I just wished I had caught it when it initially ran in the cinema. Alack! Cate Blanchett looks really amazing in this though – where Brad Pitt is made to look older, she is made up to appear younger, and vice versa. I quite like Ms. Blanchett anyway – she’s a proper actress, and being a bit of a LOTR obsessive, she will eternally be Galadriel for me. But, as the ballerina Daisy in the Curious Case she is so beautiful – porcelain flame haired elegance. The costume is rather superb too and what’s more, memorable, and as my sister astutely commented David Fincher creates a real ‘world’ in this film and it’s evident right down to the remarkable wardrobe. I was particularly taken with the mustard swing coat with thick black bands at the cuff and collar; delectable folds of brightly coloured material and almost cape like in its swing- y-ness ..shush, I know that’s not a word..
