The problem with Benjamin Button for me was that it seemed dishonest in a pretty basic way. What I mean is that it is very historically situated and it presents the interaction of Blacks and Whites in New Orleans, yet one would never know that there was a civil rights struggle throughout much of the time covered in the movie. The Blacks and Whites are so kind to each other in this movie, you would never know of the fierce resistance to integration on the part of white people. (To say nothing of the outrage that would have been expressed by racists seeing Black people raising a white child.)


I havn't seent he movie yet but thanks to your review I will go see it. cheers


I think I'll have to wait for the marketing people to send me a screener for Prayers for Bobby -- I don't get the channel it was on...I did see For the Bible Tells Me So the other day, it's excellent, I'll post about it soon. Gays should really see it.


I completely agree. I loved Benjamin Button - it was great.

Also, make sure to watch Prayers for Bobby. I'm anxious to see what you think of it. :)
