PHJB in The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons!

"I was born under unusual circumstances."

And so begins "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. A man, like any of us, unable to stop time. We follow his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusal as any man's life can be. Directed by David Fincher, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is a time traveler's tale of the people and places he bumps into along the way, the loves he loses and finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

And now you can own the soundtrack to this wonderful movie, featuring songs from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Billie & DeDe Pierce, and a host of other classic New Orleans Jazz artists. See the movie! Buy the music! Enjoy New Orleans...
