Becky and I went to see the movie, The Artist last week ago at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The MovieFone website at The Artist describes the movie as follows…
“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.”
The Artist won the Oscar for Best Picture this year, so Becky and I figured we had better go see it. We were not interested in seeing a silent film, let alone a black and white silent film, but we had to go in with an open mind.
The story was very well done. It’s about a silent movie film star who finds himself being cast aside when talking films start becoming popular. However, there’s a woman who he helps break into the movies, while he’s still a big star and famous. She ends up become a major movie star and he ends up losing everything. This creates a great deal of drama, that you can appreciate even though the film is silent.
Becky and I both really liked this movie, which surprised both of us since we both had low expectations. It was definitely worth the price of admission and a great experience.
