Being a HUGE silent film fan, I have been waiting for this film to arrive! With Oscar buzz, 6 Golden Globe nominations and a fascinating premise, let's go and see The Artist.
We are seeing the 7:15PM show and I will meet everyone in the lobby at 7:00PM in my big pink scarf.
Tuesday are are Super Tuesdays where all movie are $1.00 off.
(Rated PG-13, 100 min.) 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. Winner of the prize for Best Actor at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Michel Hazanavicius’ THE ARTIST is a heartfelt and entertaining valentine to classic American cinema. Mixing comedy, romance and melodrama to tell a story set at an epochal moment in movie history, THE ARTIST is itself an example of the form it celebrates: a black-and-white silent film that relies on images, actors and music to weave its singular spell.
