The Art Of Silence

todayJanuary 18, 2012


The Circle Cinema, Tulsa’s non-profit independent movie theater, brings us one of 2011’s most critically acclaimed films, “The Artist.”

Nominated for six Golden Globes, the most for 2011, “The Artist” takes a look at George Valentin and his concern for his career as movies change from silent to talkies.

In “The Artist,” George Valentin, played by French actor Jean Dujardin who won Best Actor at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for his role, is concerned about how the invention of talkies will change his career. Along the way, he befriends an up-and-coming dancer, Peppy Miller played by Berenice Bejo, looking to make it big.

Michel Hazanavicius, director, takes the audience back to 1927 Hollywood, both in the film and in experience. Not only does the film look at the evolution of film in 1927, it also feels like many of the films in that era. “The Artist” is shot in black and white, but what might be the most interesting feature of the film is that most of it is silent as well.

The film, which also stars John Goodman, opens January 20th at The Circle Cinema. For more information you can visit their website; you can also view the official trailer for “The Artist” online.
