I saw this fantasy/drama/romance last night. One word -- incredible. You have to see this film. Not just for the story. Not just for the actors. Not just for the special effects. All are amazing. See it for the message of enduring love. The movie stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
This movie was based on a 1921 short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I do not usually cry at movies, but the end really moved me to tears. Essentially, the story is about a man who is born an old man and follows him to his death as an infant. It is about the journey of life and the timeless power of love. It is about understanding and tolerance.
The special effects and computer generated images are so amazing. How did they do this?? I read that computerized whatever was used -- how I do not know.
Brad Pitt is, of course, beautiful. The older he gets, the more accomplished he is as an actor. Well, okay, I am happy just looking at him.
I strongly recommend this film.
