At the dawn of talking motion pictures a silent movie star (Jean Dujardin) faces uncertainty while falling for an up and coming dancer (Bérénice Bejo) on the verge of stardom. I’ve heard very little about this film from writer/director Michel Hazanavicius, but if it’s as good as the trailer (presented as a silent film) then I know I’m going to have to search it out. John Goodman, Malcolm McDowell, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle, Beth Grant, and Ed Lauter also star. The Artist begins its US release on November 23rd.
