The year is 1927, Hollywood is on the brink of a major development in the creation of motion pictures: sound! This advent, however, is not welcomed by famed silent actor George Valentin (Jean Dujardin). At first, he like many others at the time thought it would be a passing fad, but he soon realizes talkies are here to stay. Through a chance meeting with an up-and-coming young actress named Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), George gets a first hand glimpse of how quickly his life is going to change and how easily he is replaced.
It is a rare occasion to see a silent (though not really) black and white film at a mainstream cinema, even rarer that the film is as entertaining as The Artist is.Certainly deserved its Best Picture Oscar!! Check it out when you can!
