The Artist (2006) -- Season Finale!
May 2017: Critic's Choice

Directed by Michel Hazanavicius
Jean Dujardin, Berenice Bejo

In this charming fairytale of a (mostly) silent film. Jean Dujarden plays George Valentin a dashing star with, as Roger Ebert put it “one of those dazzling smiles you suspect dazzles no one more than himself.” Starlet Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo) is among those smitten, and Valentin gives her a break – just as sound enters the picture, and his own fame begins to fade. The cast includes John Goodman, James Cromwell, and an irresistible Jack Russell terrrier.
