Trailer Tuesday - The Artist

There's nowhere I'd rather be this week than at the Cannes Festival. There's a long list of movies I want to watch, but the one that stood our for me is The Artist, a silent film set in the 1920s starring Jean Dujardin,Bérénice Bejo and directed by Michel Hazanavicus. You may not already know this about me, but I am a HUGE fan of silent films and can't wait to see this one.

Hollywood 1927. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion. For young extra Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), it seems the sky's the limit - major movie stardom awaits.

Look out for more Cannes Festival movie  trailers over the next few weeks.
