It’s unfortunate that this one slipped by us because The Artist from French director Michel Hazanavius looks really interesting.
The Artist is a silent, black-and-white film set in 1927 Hollywood. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a silent movie megastar. Unfortunately, the advent of the talkies sets up his downfall from stardom. Meanwhile, movie extra Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo) is beginning to see fame and fortune as she starts her rise in the the talking pictures.
You’ll see turns from John Goodman, James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller and Malcolm McDowell.
