As with all my movie reviews, this contains spoiler information. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote a light, shallow, short story of this name. The movie is a dark, deep, three hour long story that only takes one thing from the original: Benjamin is born with an old body which grows young. I liked the movie in spite of its shortcomings, too dark, too deep, and too long. Many of the characters were realistic, interesting, likable people who cared about each other. I was glad to have met them.
