You would be a fool not to show respect from the great era of cinema, the Silent movie age and Michel Hazanavicius’s The Artist is an fitting tribute to that magical era. The Weinstein Company where the lucky winners when they picked up the Cannes Festival hit movie and now there moving forward by starting the marketing train for its soon general release with a theatrical trailer. The movie revolves around silent film star who falls in love with his young extra between the years of 1927 – 1931 and focusing on his careers decline whilst his lovers flourishes. Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo playing the main characters with John Goodman, James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle and Ben Kurland.
This movie is a early contender for the next Oscars and its great to see its not a movie that has American stars in the lead but whats even more fascinating the whole movie is shot in glorious black& white and keeping it authentic its a silent movie too. Its going to be fascinating to see how this movie will be promoted, hopefully playing on the authenticity but American movie fans can catch this from November 23rd howver next month the movie is heading to Toronto Film Festival, as for all us here in UK&Ireland no word yet on a release date just yet.
Hollywood 1927. George Valentin is a very successful silent movie star. The arrival of talking pictures will mark the end of his career. Peppy Miller, a young woman extra, becomes a major movie star.
