This French import is silent but made to be loved. Silent film star George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) struggles to stay relevant at the end of the silent era. He meets would-be starlet Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), who dreams of success, and as her stock rises at the studio, Valentin’s plummets. He puts all his money into one last vanity showcase. Though it lacks a few touches, this film gets most everything right and is much more than a gimmick. Don’t be surprised to see Dujardin, and possibly director Michel Hazanavicius, holding Oscars next year.
