In 1929, actor George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a bona fide matinee idol with many adoring fans. While working on his latest film, George finds himself falling in love with an ingenue named Peppy Miller and, what's more, it seems Peppy feels the same way. But George is reluctant to cheat on his wife with the beautiful young actress. The growing popularity of sound in movies further separates the potential lovers, as George's career begins to fade while Peppy's star rises.

Entertaining and clean and gives a glimpse into history. I'm not quite understanding why it got best picture, however. It wasn't extremely powerful or moving and wasn't a unique story at all. 3 stars. Rated 12+ because a scene depicting a man putting a gun in his mouth and because of a scene where a woman's entire sternum is visible :0September 1st, 2012 · Details2 Thanks ·
Loved this movie. I thought a silent movie would be lame but it was very original, clean and entertaining. I'd recommend this to anyone.November 3rd, 2012 · Details2 Thanks ·
