The Artist has the Academy Talking

By Lauren Monquin — 02/06/12
“The Artist” may be silent…but it has the Academy talking. This 21st century silent movie introduces a new generation to physical drama and old time magic. Throughout the film, actor and film maker, Georgie Valentin ironically fights for the right to keep making silent movies. He stays strong with his art and meets a lovely actress along the way. The Artist proves that words are not necessary to snag an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.
