Benjamin Button Gets Sneak Praise

A scooper for Hollywood Elsewhere spoke with one of the costume designers on David Fincher’s upcoming F. Scott Fitzgerald adaptation “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and the word is good.

The designer, who apparently isn’t one to talk excitedly about the projects she works on, says the project was one of the highlights of her career:

“Top to bottom she said the set and production was a dream, that both David FIncher and Brad Pitt were consummate professionals, and that the script was top-notch — the only script she can recall making her cry, she said. She added that the look and scope of design of the film while ambitious is also intricate and exacting…

Furthermore, she mentioned that some of the sequences they saw that had been edited were absolutely stunning. Her description of the mood of those who worked on it is that of bated breath — a near universal belief that they have made an outstanding and moving film, one that transcends and one they wish not to jinx by too much loose talk.”

To put things in perspective, this designer has worked on the likes of “Traffic, all of the Ocean’s movies, Solaris and Miami Vice.”
