It's a rare enough sight to see a black and white movie in this day and age. But a silent black and white movie? With serious chances at taking home some major awards this season? 'Tis the season to believe as Michel Hazanavicius's The Artist has been taking home audience awards at prestigious festivals, including a Best Actor win for star Jean Dujardin and a Palme d'Or nomination at Cannes. The film is a love letter to cinema, set in 1927 as a silent movie star begins to fade into obscurity, while falling in love with a woman who's set to make her big break at the dawn of the talkies era. But as the audiences who have seen it can attest, you don't need to be a film buff to recognize this is crowd-pleasing, standing ovation stuff.Click here for The Artist reviews, pictures and trailers.
