The Artist

What kind of bliss is this?

A black and white, almost entirely silent film, financed by the French, and it still somehow beat the odds (and films from Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Woody Allen) to take home five Oscars, including Best Picture.

To which I said then, and say now, yes!

Documenting that moment in time when the “talkies” swept in and forever changed Hollywood, director Michael Hazanavicius captures pure, infectious fun, with big help from stars Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo.

He’s a (possibly) falling star, she’s an ingenue on the rise, and they make sweet music together.
