Enchanting Benjamin Button

I went to see "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" this afternoon to kind of get me out of the doldrums...I have been feeling really stuck all around of late - looking for work/more money, unhappy in a relationship, thinking about my mom...
What a wonderful story..I found the time passed as if in a dream. Brad Pitt does a fantastic job and Cate Blanchett is her usual luminous and transcendent self. It's like a fairytale or fantasy about someone who is born old and ages backwards (or is it de-ages?). Great supporting cast too, including Julia Ormond .
Right now I absolutely COVET the sexy red dress Cate wears in the 40's era of the film...
