'Forrest Gump' and 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'

Two films about men “born into unusual circumstances” chronicle their life and times in a similar fashion—in fact, they’re both adapted from their respective source material by the same screenwriter. “Forrest Gump” follows a mentally disabled man and “Benjamin Button” follows a man born old who ages backward, both of whom end up being part of great historical moments. Both films chart the lives of men who are different from others, who have a lovesick romance with a woman from their childhood, and they even share similar themes of personal freedom.
