Well done Button...

I watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night for the second time. It is a great movie, although a tad long. The story is thick with life metaphors and historical context, but the best part of the film is Button's incredible wardrobe (although it doesn't make much sense that he's unemployed in New Orleans in the mid 1900's but wearing some serious designer threads). Nevertheless, it made the movie more interesting - at least for me. I love the use of wardrobe to further develop characters.

Of course, it doesn't take much to make Brad Pitt look good, but he rarely repeats any outfit, wears his clothing with a great nonchalance, and is always well suited for the occasion. Kudos to the wardrobe stylist. Watch and learn.

Also, a great quote that stuck with me from the movie:

“...What I think is, it’s never too late...or, in my case, too early, to be whoever you want to be...There’s no time limit, start anytime you want...change or stay the same...there aren’t any rules...We can make the best or worst of it...I hope you make the best...I hope you see things that startle you. Feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you challenge yourself. I hope you stumble, and pick yourself up. I hope you live the life you wanted to...and if you haven’t, I hope you start all over again.”

My favorite look is a khaki/beige colored sweater with sort of a sweatshirt cut with cropped sleeves. But when he's riding the motorcycle... damn.
