This is NOT a black movie per se....but! "In the Case of Benjamin Button" is an excellent movie which despicts the black woman in this film VERY favorably....including the black men- even though the period is during the Jim Crow era. I watched every second of it with excitement and huge interest. And yes..it was looooonnnng! Almost too long...except! That it is a great saga of human journey. This is the best I've seen in while. I recommend it. In fact, it is money well spent considering how much it costs nowadays to see a good movie.
I saw this movie last night and not only is it an excellent film, it is also thought provoking (imo).
And I agree that black folk were portrayed favorably...
considering the era. . .racism is not even addressed. But it works.
