"Your Life is Defined By Its Opportunities..."

We finally had a chance to watch Benjamin Button this weekend. It was a great movie, quite well done. Somehow, it left me wanting more, which isn't a bad thing. The movie really puts into perspective what it means to love and to lose someone. Whether or not we feel prepared to handle them, those emotions and experiences are essential to our existence. Because it is not easy to make sense of them, that's probably why this movie does not lend itself to being wrapped up nice and neatly at the end. I found Brad Pitt charming as Benjamin. I loved Taraji Henson as Queenie. As my hubster would say, this movie would be great in Blu-Ray, so it might be worth waiting to watch later.
