Based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON tells the tale of how a man deals with life as he grows younger while everyone around him grows old. Scoring the film is Golden Globe-winning French composer Alexandre Desplat, who blends the enchantment of THE GOLDEN COMPASS with the romance and intrigue of THE PAINTED VEIL. Like FORREST GUMP meets ALICE IN WONDERLAND, Desplat plays on the fantasy and drama inherent in the film's theme. This two-disc set features the score itself on Disc One and a collection of vintage jazz music and film dialogue on Disc Two.
