Book Vs Movie: “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”

The F. Scott Fitzgerald Short Story Vs the David Fincher Movie

The Margos take on the world of magical realism with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button which was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and published in Collier’s Magazine in 1922. The main character, Benjamin Button, is born looking and behaving like a 70-year-old man. Gradually it is revealed that Benjamin is aging backward so when he is 18 in his heart, he looks and acts like a 50-year-old man. 

In his lifetime, his father puts him in charge of the family business, marries a beautiful younger woman, enlists to fight in the Spanish American War, has a son, and then his family must deal with the consequences of him aging back to his birth state. 

The David Fincher 2008 adaptation stars Brad Pitt as Benjamin and Cate Blanchett as his love interest Daisy. There are several changes between the short story and the multiple Academy Award-nominated film. We are here to talk about it! 

So between the book and the film--which did we prefer? Have a listen and find out! 

In this ep the Margos discuss:

Clips used:

  • Benjamin Button is “saved”
  • Benjamin meets Elizabeth Abbott
  • Benjamin and Daisy reflect on middle age
  • Brad Pitt’s last soliloquy
