Found this article about Daisy's character, a VERY good read:

Saw this last night and have to admit it was pretty damn good! Even my husband loved it and he wasn't excited when I first mentioned going and see this movie. Would go as far as to say it's one of the best movies I have ever watched. I didn't cry though I really choked up quite a bit. The ending almost got me it was close.

saw it tonight, and had to sit in the very front row (*hate* that, that happened with "the departed") so that might have detracted from the overall impression, but the total aimlessness of the whole thing did bother me.

that said, the filmmaking on display was stunning. some surpassingly beautiful images in there, particularly the last one with the water and the clock.

it moved me to tears, but more because of my own issues with certain shit that this movie touched upon, and less so because i was genuinely feeling for the characters in the film. Cate was great, as has been noted.

i've never thought that Pitt is much of an actor, but i think he has integrity and he picks interesting films. friday night we watched "assasination/jesse james" and that put me in a foul mood for hours, and not really in a good way, but i respected the film because it made no apologies for being just about the most bleak, despairing film experience i've had in a while.

Saw it last night and quite enjoyed it. The makeup was FANTASTIC as was both Pitt's and Kate's aging. There is one HUGE FLAW that keeps knawing away at me concerning the timeline...near the end when Benjamin Buttons dies as an infant the narrarator (who is Kate/the old woman in the bed) says it was 2003. This makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER considering the deathbed scene is 2005!!! She could NOT HAVE AGED that much in two years. I can't believe they let that slide. Lazy, Lazy, Lazy.

I aws under the impression that Daisy was terminally ill, with cancer or whatever she had, and that caused her to look a lot older and more fragile than she normally would have become in 2 years. I don't think that's too much of a stretch.

There are bigger problems with that script than how old she looked in the hospital.
