Maybe you have heard about a black-and-white movie starring French actors and made by a French director—a silent film that’s an Oscar contender for Best Picture? Yes, it’s all true, chiefly thanks to the talents of Jean Dujardin (a popular comic actor in France). Dujardin balances broad physical comedy and subtle facial expressions to give depth to his portrayal of George Valentin, a silent film star forgotten in Hollywood’s switch to talking pictures. The real star of the show, however, is his constant companion, a Jack Russell terrier named Uggy, who should be the one to win an Oscar—no kidding! If you can’t find it in your local theater, watch for the DVD release. (Weinstein)
