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 (Bérénice Bejo), it seems the sky’s the limit–major movie stardom awaits. “The Artist”–already considered a shoe-in for an Oscar, which would make it the first silent movie in 80 years to win one–tells the story of their interlinked destinies. The Weinstein Company’s “The Artist” won Best Picture and Best Director (Michel Hazanavicius) by New York Film Critics Circle, Best Actor (Dujardin) at Cannes Film Festival and is nominated for five Independent Spirit Awards. It opens exclusively in Brooklyn at BAM Rose Cinemas this Friday, December 9th. Buy tickets now to one of the best movies of the year!
