So What exactly do we know?
Unlike The Bourne Identity, Benjaman did not wake up with a complete blank slate of memories. He doesn’t remember any people, but there are a few places, events, and other things he remembers, such as a few famous movie theatres, some childhood memories in the Indianapolis area. For example, he remembers his birthday (he thinks), since it’s the same as Michael Jackson’s.
Quick facts: Benjaman was found in Richmond Hill, Georgia, and has specific memories pertaining to Denver and Indianapolis. We know his birthday is 8/29/48 because Benjaman specifically remembers that he was born ten years before Michael Jackson.
