In Theaters : THE ARTIST (2011)

Official Synopsis : Hollywood 1927. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion. For young extra Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo), it seems the sky's the limit - major movie stardom awaits. The Artist tells the story of their interlinked destinies.

Genre: Drama, Romance, Comedy

What to Expect : Beautiful and touching tribute to the magic of cinema and the silent movie era. A great cast and stylish execution help the movie pull all the right heart-strings. (LIMITED RELEASE)

Critical Response : Positive. Critics pretty much agree with my statements above. No wonder, since the movie won an award at Cannes for Best Actor (Jean Dujardin) and was nominated for the Palme d'Or. Rated 98% on Rottentomatoes.com from 56 positive and 1 negative reviews.
